Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation

Update on Quarters 1 and 2: Discussion

Ms Tara Coogan:

Complaints have been lodged recently with the Commission. The Commission has written to the Department and we are engaging in a confidential process with it. We are looking into the matter. There are differences in the legal systems in member states, and that can cause some challenges sometimes. We are trying to explain that while the system is not identical to that in the UK and there is a good reason it is not that way, namely because our legal system is different from that of the United Kingdom. We are working through some of these issues.
