The new rules were published in the Official Journal on 18th December and give Member States 18 months to implement. The official texts are here. Now the real fun begins!

It's 18 months from the day when the directives were adopted: so the due date for national legislation is 25 May 2011 (see article 25 of directive 2009/140 and article 4 of directive 2009/136)!

Its actually the day following the publication in the Official Journal that the Directives enter into force - so that's 19 December 2009: see p30 (Article 7) - so 18 months is now ticking...
