The number of infringement procedures against Italy now stand at 83, after the European Commission decided to close 4 procedures on 19 April 2023. The above infringements are related to European directives concerning electronic tolling interoperability, environmental noise management and exempted entities, financial holding companies, and mixed financial holding companies, respectively.
The European Commission also decided to close one pre-infringement case, and adopt three reasoned opinions and four letters of formal notice under Article 258 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
The above cases concern, inter alia, late payment of justice-related costs, fixed-term employment contracts in the public sector, non-communication of maritime spatial plans, preventing the use of the financial system for money-laundering or terrorist-financing purposes, and third-country nationals’ admission as seasonal workers.
The 83 infringements against Italy were opened for violation of EU law (62) or failure to transpose directives (21), respectively.
The sectors recording the highest number of infringements (19% of the total) are Environment and Economic and Financial Affairs (15 procedures), followed by Transport and Labour and Social Policies (7 cases).infringement procedures
