(ANSA) - Brussels, October 8 - While grappling with
structural reforms, debt crisis and deepening recession over the
last six months, the Italian government has neglected to
transform European Union (EU) directives into local law.
Italy tops EU country laggards, according to an
implementation "Scoreboard" published by the European Commission
(EC) on Monday, ranking first out of 27 countries for open
infractions against EU directives.
The EC chastised Italy for accumulating new delays
particularly in the last six months.
The EC found Italy's neglect is most flagrant in transport
and the environment.
Italy is coping with 69 open infractions against EU
directives.
The next poorest compliance comes from Greece, with 68 open
infractions.
Third worst is the seat of the EU itself, Belgium, with 64
open infractions.
The EC noted that Italy has made progress in recent years,
however.
Compared to May 2010, Italy has reduced the number of open
infractions by 25%.
