Single Market Scoreboard

Transposition deficit: 1.1% (last report: 1.1%) – stable result for the 3rd consecutive time.
EU average = 1%; proposed target (in Single Market Act) = 0.5%

Romania is one of the 14 Member States that missed the 1% objective, although being the closest to the threshold. It transposed 12 of the 17 Single Market-related directives (70%) due to have been transposed in the 6 months prior to the cut-off date for calculation (1 June –30 November 2020). This shows that Romania could monitor the timely transposition of the directives even better. Transposition is an ongoing process and any let-up may result in the deficit quickly increasing.

Overdue directives:11 (last report: 11) and none more than 2 years overdue.

Average delay: 7.2 months (last report: 7.6 months) – new slight decrease by 0.4 percentage point, in line with the EU average delay.
EU average = 7.4 months

Romania has 1 directive that has been due for over a year and 5 directives that have been due for between 6 and 12 months. Their duration is offset by the shortest duration of its 5 other outstanding directives (less than 6 months).

Conformity deficit: 1.3% (last report: 1.3%) – stable result.
EU average = 1.4% proposed target (in Single Market Act) = 0.5%

The launching of new infringement proceedings for incorrect transposition of Single Market directives is starting to slow down. Nevertheless, the number of such ongoing cases is still high. With 13 directives presumed to have been incorrectly transposed, Romania is now below the EU average deficit.
