The reciprocity mechanism initiates a procedure, with precise time frames and actions to be taken with a view to ending a situation of non-reciprocity, the moment the Commission is notified of such a situation by a Member State. Notifications by five Member States were published by the Commission on 12 April 2014  [1] .
