EC sends Germany to Court of Justice over gas directive

Oct 16, 2002 02:00 AM

The European Commission is to take Germany to the European Court of Justice over its failure to implement the EU directive on gas market opening fully, the EC said. The Commission said Germany had merely implemented parts of the directive as legislation.

A draft bill for a new energy law was not passed by the German parliament in September, as had been planned. With a new government currently being formed, there is no fixed date for when this law will finally be adopted, the Commission said.
"It is important that the legislation for implementing the directive in Germany is completed," the Commission said. "Otherwise, this could hamper gas market liberalization." The German government maintains the market is in fact open, despite the fact that some legal aspects are still missing.
