Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-007661/2016

Under the shared management system, in the event that undue payments are identified, the Italian Authorities are required to recover them from the beneficiaries, including applicable interest, and reimburse the corresponding amounts to the EU Budget. The Commission is closely monitoring the procedures for recoveries of undue payments by the Member States, in particular for fraud cases, and applies the necessary measures in order to protect the EU financial interests, including if necessary financial corrections based on the quantification of the loss for the EU budget.

The Commission transmits incoming allegations of fraud and other serious irregularities to the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF). Where OLAF decides to open an investigation, it reports its findings to the Commission while making, as appropriate, recommendations for recovery from final beneficiaries.

The Commission is also closely monitoring the quality of the management and control system applied by the Member States through conformity enquiries. Such enquiries may result in corrective and/or preventive actions by the Commission to protect the financial interests of the EU such as the application of financial corrections or suspensions and also the triggering of requests to the Member States to carry out remedial action plans.
