Commission to test the efficiency of national courts

On 27 March, the European Commission launched the EU Justice Scoreboard, "a tool to promote effective justice and growth", which according to the press release, offers a comparison of the justice systems of member states in a bid to assess how their activity can affect economic growth.The justice scoreboard will focus on the business and investment climate, such as the efficiency of EU courts to resolve civil and commercial disputes. The Commisison is working on the assumption that the quality of national courts can affect the entire EU, since a lack of implementation of EU law in one court can affect the functioning of the single market as well as undermine the rights of citizens and businesses operating across borders. Smart regulators will not disagree and they will welcome this additional tool to measure implementation and enforcement of regulation.
