11 Recommendations to the EC as to the functioning of the PSI Directive on redress –Is it functioning? Yes  end No  why not?  –Since there is no compliance with minimum requirements »If yes: infringement procedure and/or recommendations »If no:  –The lack of harmonization of redress mechanisms is frustrating the realization of the objectives of the Directive »If yes: basis for harmonizing legislation, and what? »If no:  –Redress is functioning but yields no results since the objectives of Directive need to be changed »If yes: new policy  legislate/other policy measures »If no: there is no basis for the Directive Wrap up
