Single Market Scoreboard

Transposition deficit: 1.6% (last report: 0.6%) – huge increase by 1 percentage point, and in a group of 6 Members States that more than doubled their deficit within the year and consequently missed the 1% target.
EU average = 1%; proposed target (in Single Market Act) = 0.5%

After years of constant effort to drop below the 1% threshold and stay there, Slovenia is now back above this threshold. In addition, it only transposed 9 of the 17 Single Market-related directives (53%) 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 Slovenia may have some difficulties in monitoring the timely transposition of directives. Transposition is an ongoing process and any let-up may result in the deficit quickly increasing.

Overdue directives: 16 (last report: 6) including 5 on environment. One directive is more than 2 years overdue: Directive 2013/59/EUR on basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation.

Average delay: 8.9 months (last report: 7.4 months) – slight increase by 1.5 months and in a group of 8 Member States that increased their delay in transposing directives within the year.
EU average = 7.4 months

Slovenia added 1 long overdue directive (due for 2 years or more) to its backlog and 7 directives are being due by more than 6 months. Nevertheless, their duration is offset by the shorter duration of the 8 other outstanding directives (less than 6 months).

Conformity deficit: 1.2% (last report: 0.9%) – increase by 0.3 percentage point and the highest deficit ever for Slovenia.
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. This is not the case for Slovenia as it maintained its previous score. With 12 directives presumed to have been incorrectly transposed, Slovenia is in a group of 8 Member States that show a combination of a high transposition deficit and a high percentage of incorrectly transposed directives. It remains however under the EU average deficit.
