The Association Agreement obliges Ukraine for its implementation in a timely and high-quality manner.

In July 2016, the UCEP published the first report “Ukraine and the Association Agreement. Implementation Monitoring, 2014 – the first half of 2016 ”(Report I) which analyzed the progress in adapting national legislation to the requirements of EU acts contained in the Association Agreement. This report aims to analyze the progress of those commitments that Ukraine did not fulfill on time in the period between 2014 – the first half of 2016. The study analyzes the dynamics of changes that occurred or did not occur from the second half of 2016 to March 1, 2017.

The analysis revealed that, on the one hand, the energy sector is the most successful due to the systematic adaptation and implementation of European legislation. In other sectors such as transport, public health, and the environment, no significant progress has been made. In the field of transport, draft laws have been developed, but to date, only one of them has passed the first reading. In the field of public health, 2 orders have been adopted, but they still do not take into account the latest changes in EU legislation. In the field of environment, the provisions have not been adapted to EU legislation.
