The Commission has not taken action against Malta since March.  This significant accomplishment reflects the commitment of the Government in ensuring the proper transposition and application of EU law.

The College of Commissioners of the European Commission adopted a decision to close two outstanding infringement proceedings against Malta. This adoption of the College, which meets once a month to take action against those Member States that are infringing EU law, means that the Commission has taken decisions to close infringement procedures against Malta for three consecutive months (April, May, June). In all, these have resulted in the closure of six (6) infringement proceedings against Malta since April.

The infringement procedures which have been closed in the past three months are as follows. In all cases, Malta is currently in line with EU legislation:

April

  •  Infringement No. 2011/2019 concerning the transposition of Directive 2007/66/EC on remedies in the area of public procurement.

May         

  • Infringement 2013/0055 concerning the non-transposition of Directive 2011/88/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 November 2011 amending Directive 97/68/EC as regards the provisions for engines placed on the market under the flexibility scheme
  • Infringement No 2013/0054 on the alleged non-transposition of Directive 2010/63/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 September 2010 on the protection of animals used for scientific purpose
  • Infringement No. 2013/0166 on the alleged non-transposition of Commission Implementing Directive 2012/31/EU of 25 October 2012 amending Annex IV to Council Directive 2006/88/EC as regards the list of fish species susceptible to viral haemorrhage septicaemia and the deletion of the entry for epizootic ulcerative syndrome

June

  • Infringement No 2013/0167 on the non-transposition of Commission Delegated Directive 2012/50/EU of 10 October 2012 amending, for the purposes of adapting to technical progress, Annex III to Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards an exemption for applications containing lead
  • Infringement No. 2013/0168 on the non-transposition of Commission Delegated Directive 2012/51/EU of 10 October 2012 amending, for the purposes of adapting to technical progress, Annex III to Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards an exemption for applications containing cadmium.

These results confirm Malta as one of the best performers in the EU in terms of transposing Union legislation. The Government remains committed to fully transposing EU legislation into national law in order to enable Maltese individuals, consumers and businesses to make the most of the opportunities and rights offered by EU membership.
