Transposition and Infringements (Iceland)
The single market body of law applicable in EEA EFTA States is not the exact same as in EU Member States. This is due to the time lag between the adoption or repeal of laws by the EU and their addition to or removal from the EEA Agreement.
Any comparison of the results between this Scoreboard and the EEA EFTA Scoreboard must take this difference into account. For more information on Iceland’s performance, please see the EFTA Surveillance Authority’s Internal Market Scoreboard.
