EU unhappy at MLD4 implementation

The European Commission is unhappy with Member State transposition of MLD4. It currently has open infringement procedures against 20 Member States but says most have adopted and notified missing transposition measures. The Commission is now scrutinising those measures, while noting Member States have only until January 2020 to implement MLD5.

The Commission is also looking at what further work it should do on assessing third countries It will priories which countries it needs to assess by the end of this year and will work to have more than 85% of countries assessed by 2022.
