SOFIA (Bulgaria), December 7 (SeeNews) – The European Commission said on Thursday it has referred Bulgaria to the Court of Justice of the EU for not notifying its measures transposing EU rules establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning.
The Commission said in a statement it will ask the Court to impose a daily penalty payment of 14,089 euro ($16,609) per day on Bulgaria.
In case the transposition remains incomplete and the Court of Justice of the EU confirms the Commission's view, the daily penalty would have to be paid from the date of the judgement or a later date set by the Court until the transposition is complete.
The final amount of the daily penalty will be decided by the Court, but this cannot exceed the Commission's proposal.
The deadline for transposing the directive into national law was September 2016. The Commission opened infringement proceedings against Bulgaria in November 2016 and subsequently sent a letter of formal notice in July 2017.
