“Trainings of MoJ employees in the field of approximation of legislation”.
In the context of EU integration process, the Ministry of Justice, as the authority responsible for the approximation of legislation in the field of justice, has the obligation to administer the process of approximation of legislation. The first step in the approximation process is the analysis and comparison of EU legislation with the relevant legislation to determine the conformity status of the legal framework and the measures that the state will take to approximate the Albanian legislation with that of the EU. Regarding the transposition of the Directives, there is a well-defined methodology, which the Ministry staff should be able to implement. This relates primarily to the development of the Table of Concordance (ToC). The objective of developing the ToC is to identify legal provisions regulating the same aspect, what has been transposed or not transposed (gaps); and identifying other legal provisions. In this regard, it should be remembered that EU Regulations and Decisions are not part of the approximation process, as they enter into force on the date of the state’s EU membership. Nevertheless, EU Regulations and Decisions dictate the adoption of national measures for their implementation and cannot be left out of the integration process.
Due to all of the above, the Ministry staff should be trained at the appropriate level. Consequently, the measure is current and realistic.
Conclusion: This measure addresses the Specific Objective and Outcome 4.4.3. The approximation of Albanian legislation with the EU Acquis is accomplished in one phase and in a quality in accordance with the SAA and the negotiating framework, and is in line with it and Objective 4.4. The measure is clearly formulated and necessary.
