Summary:

In this performance review, we assessed the CJEU’s case management processes, in particular whether the procedures in place promoted the efficient handling of cases lodged and whether their timely resolution could be enhanced.

In recent years the CJEU has increased its focus on timeliness of case management and progress has been made to reduce the significant backlog of cases that had built up at the General Court by the end of 2016.

Our review concluded that the CJEU could further enhance these positive results by considering a move towards more active individual case management, using tailored time-frames and taking account of the human resources employed, and by taking certain other steps to enhance management systems.
