Please click here for the first report on the implementation by the Member States of the Framework Decisions 2008/909/JHA, 2008/947/JHA and 2009/829/JHA on Transfer of Prisoners, on Probation and Alternative Sanctions and on the European Supervision Order, together with the accompanying staff working document (click here for the document).

This report was adopted by the Commission on the 5th of February 2014.

You will find a press release from the European Commission by clicking here.

The report aims to provide a preliminary evaluation of implementation of the three Framework Decisions by Member States, as communicated to the Commission. The report also reminds the Member States of the possibility for the Commission to launch infringement proceedings for non-transposition or inadequate transposition as of 1 December 2014, the end of the transitional period under the Lisbon Treaty.

The staff working document accompanying the report provides an overview of the State of Play of implementation and of the Declarations made by the Member States, hopefully a useful tool for practitioners.
