The December infringements’ package: Commission acts for full, proper and timely implementation of EU law for the benefit of citizens and businesses

To help citizens and businesses benefit fully from the internal market, the European Commission continuously engages with and, if necessary, initiates infringement procedures against Member States which do not respect European law. The European Commission also closes pending cases where the Member State concerned, in cooperation with the Commission, has solved the problem and ensured compliance with EU law, thus rendering a referral to the Court of Justice of the EU unnecessary. This month, as part of its monthly package of infringement decisions, the Commission took a number of decisions (including 7 letters of formal notice, 77 reasoned opinions and 3 referrals to the Court of Justice of the EU). In particular, the Commission is today acting against the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Spain and the United Kingdom because they have failed to either set up penalties systems to deter car manufacturers from violating car emissions legislation, or to apply such sanctions where a breach of law has actually occurred. A summary of the key decisions as well as the contact details of the relevant Spokespersons and the corresponding press releases can be found in the MEMO. On the general EU infringement procedure, a memo is also available here
