Implementing EU Law into National Law

Deze tweedaagse workshop geeft je een praktijkgericht overzicht van de politieke, juridische en management-gerelateerde aspecten bij de omzetting van EU-wetgeving naar de nationale wetgeving. De workshop wordt in het Engels gegeven aan de hand van presentaties, case studies, praktijkoefeningen en groepsdiscussies.

Pluspunten

Reduceer het risico op inbreuken tegen de implementering van de Europese regelgeving!

Het Hof van Justitie ziet sinds 2016 opnieuw een stijging van het aantal inbreuken inzake de implementering van de Europese regelgeving. Een beter begrip van de precieze aard van de implementatieverplichtingen, de verwachtingen van de Commissie én hoe die te combineren met de eigen nationale prioriteiten, helpen je om tijdig en correct de eigen nationale wetgeving in lijn te brengen met de Europese wetgeving. Hierdoor reduceer je het risico om betrokken te worden bij tijdrovende inbreukonderzoeken.

Praktijkgericht

 Deze workshop reikt je methodologieën en praktische instrumenten aan om te voldoen aan de Europese verplichtingen en helpt je om nationale en supra-nationale politieke belangen in evenwicht te brengen met de (grond)wettelijke verplichtingen.

Op het programma

Day 1

 

The three dimensions of EU policy and law implementation

 

Linking EU and national legislation

Treaty obligations regarding implementation, self-imposed legal obligations (acquis) and definitions and structure of EU legal acts will be reviewed and discussed. Also questions related to so-called “soft law” and “approximation versus harmonisation” will be considered.
 

Identifying legal acts after Lisbon

Working in groups, participants will be asked to analyze legal acts (regulations, directives, decisions and delegated acts) and identify obligations in terms of implementation measures, organizational and reporting requirements, time limits, etc.

 

Implementation process management

How to efficiently organize and work in an ”implementation project”? (consultation procedures, relations between ministries and agencies, the role of process planning and the ever important question: Who takes the lead?)

 

National processes of implementation and stakeholders

Who does what and when? Involvement of national governments, NGOs and local and regional governments in dealing with the EU. Participants will be asked to identify national tasks, stakeholders, sources of information and elements to consider when planning the implementation process.

 

Day 2

 

Implementing measures and administrative capacities

Building upon the previous day’s sessions, this session reviews the national implementation measures, which Member States need to introduce into national law, when transposing directives and establishing the legal and organizational frameworks to apply and enforce regulations.

 

Delegation and coordination at the national level

This session pays particular attention to the importance of national coordination when deciding upon delegation and adopting implementation measures as well as the reasons why, including the links between the implementers and those, who negotiated the EU legislation to be implemented.

 

Exchange of experiences: National coordination of law approximation – the Belgian case
 

Formalities not to be forgotten: notification instruments

Upon completing the national law approximation process, Member States must notify the Commission and/or the Council Secretariat of the result. Although attempts are being made to streamline these notifications, various notification instruments are still being used by different MS. While examples hereof will be given, special attention will be paid to the Commission’s web-based notification system – NEM. In addition, Correlation Tables and Tables of Concordance and their uses as planning instruments will be reviewed.
 

Simulation: Planning the law approximation process

Participants are divided into groups and given different tasks, which normally need to be considered when preparing a plan to implement an EU legal act. They are also asked to identify problems and come up with solutions.
 

Consequences of not meeting the implementation obligations

What reactions can be expected? This session provides a practical overview of the impact of the direct effect of EU law, the principle of state liability and the infringement procedure after Lisbon.
