CAP reform: European Commission adopts delegated acts
- integrated administration and control system and conditions for refusal or withdrawal of payments and administrative penalties applicable to direct payments, rural development support and cross compliance,
- requirements related to the agricultural products benefiting from private storage aid,
- fruit and vegetables and processed fruit and vegetables sectors,
- aid for accompanying measures in the framework of a School Fruit and Vegetables Scheme,
- support programmes in the sectors of olive oil and table olives,
- measures under the national support programmes in the wine sector,
- support for rural development,
- paying agencies and other bodies, financial management, clearance of accounts, securities and use of euro,
- public intervention expenditure.Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union allows the legislator (i.e. the European Parliament and the Council) to delegate to the Commission the power to adopt non-legislative acts of general application to supplement or amend non-essential elements of a legislative act (quasi-legislative acts). Legal acts adopted by the Commission in this way are referred to as "delegated acts" (Article 290(3)).The Commission prepares and adopts delegated acts drawing on the expertise of, among others, the authorities of the Member States that ultimately will be responsible for the implementation of the acts, as well as on experts of the European Parliament.Delegated acts are subject to the ex-post control by both the Council representing Member States and the European Parliament. Delegated Acts can only enter into force if no objection has been expressed by these two institutions – in effect, the two legislators have a veto power. In addition, the European Parliament or the Council may revoke the Commission's delegated powers at any stage.
