(…) During the reference period, the European Commission closed 12 infringement procedures, suspended the decision to refer one case to the European Union Court of Justice, and pulled off from another case pending before this Court – the latter will be radiated,” according to a press release.
According to the cited source, the EC and the measures for the transposition of three European directives have been notified and an EU Pilot dossier has been favorably closed.
“Romania is taking active steps to ensure the transposition of the European legislation into the national one. At MAE level, we have been able to raise the level of awareness among the institutions and public authorities related to the particularities of the infringement procedures and to speed up the adoption of the transposition of the normative acts. We have strengthened the institutional dialogue with the representatives of the European Commission and have instituted and put in place the necessary measures to avoid going to the Court of Justice of the European Union and pronouncing convictions against the Romanian state,” said the Secretary of State for Inter-institutional and Legal Relations within MAE, Cristian Winzer, quoted in the press release.
