The European Commission on Thursday called on Greece, Finland and Malta to comply with EU legislating requiring the drafting of marine strategies for protection of their seas.

According to a Commission announcement, the three countries have not informed the Commission on adoption by national legislation of an EU framework directive on marine strategy, which should have been completed by July 15, 2010.

If the three countries fail to inform the Commission, in two months' time, of the measures they have taken to transfer the EU directive into the national legislation, otherwise the Commission, under standing EU procedures, may refer the cases to the European Court of Justice.
