The late or missing compliance with EU law has a serious negative impact on the integration process and the development of common policies. Determining which factors play the most important role in favoring non-compliance isn't therefore a simply trivial issue. This paper briefly reviews the research literature and proposes a model to explain the variation of non compliance at national level. We find evidence that political power in the EU increases the number of infringements committed, while the quality of institutions mitigate the phenomena.However what is more evident is that a shift from a general analysis on total compliance to a sector and policy level analysis is necessary to achieve more significant results.
