The Dublin Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 118/2014 is designed to ‘increase the efficiency of the Dublin system and improve the cooperation between national authorities’ by ensuring the ‘effective application’ by Member States of the Dublin III Regulation (EU) No. 604/2013 in practice. As part of that intent Article 4 of the Dublin Regulation concerns the provision of information to applicants, including the use of common leaflets. Many States, including the UK, are currently experiencing technical issues with the leaflets, delaying their implementation. However the necessary information they contain is provided to applicants by other means at relevant points during the consideration process.

In particular, information about the possibility to challenge a decision to transfer a case to another signatory state under the Dublin III Regulation, the national authorities to which appeals and reviews are to be lodged and the relevant time limits are provided to applicants in the papers accompanying the transfer decision.
