This Directive seeks to make possible the recognition of an expulsion decision issued by a competent authority in one Member State against a third country national present within the territory of another Member State. The Directive does not apply to family members of citizens of the Union who have exercised their right of free movement. Member States were required to bring into force the laws and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive by 2 December 2002. The Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform states that the transposition date does not apply to Ireland, as this is a Schengen-related measure.
