Commission takes action
The EU Commission has issued a reasoned opinion against Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Italy, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and the United Kingdom for non- or partial transposition of the Pensions Directive into their national law, thereby capturing all the member states that it has identified earlier for lagging. The next step in the infringement proceedings according to Art. 226 EU Treaty would be court action in front of the ECJ after two months time (via IPE).
