Position of the European Parliament adopted at first reading on 20 November 2013 with a view to the adoption of Regulation (EU) No .../2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the financing, management and monitoring of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 352/78, (EC) No 165/94, (EC) No 2799/98, (EC) No 814/2000, (EC) No 1290/2005 and (EC) No 485/2008
(As an agreement was reached between Parliament and Council, Parliament's position corresponds to the final legislative act, Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013.)



on cross-compliance

The Council and the European Parliament invite the Commission to monitor the transposition and the implementation by the Member States of Directive 2000/60/EC of 23 October 2000 establishing a framework for Community action in the field of water policy and Directive 2009/128/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 establishing a framework for Community action to achieve the sustainable use of pesticides and, where appropriate, to come forward, once these Directives have been implemented in all Member States and the obligations directly applicable to farmers have been identified, with a legislative proposal amending this regulation with a view to including the relevant parts of these Directives in the system of cross-compliance.


on relation to late payments made by the paying agencies to beneficiaries (Article 42(1))

The European Commission declares that when it adopts rules on the reduction of reimbursement to the paying agencies in case of payment made to the beneficiaries after the latest possible date laid down by Union legislation, the scope of the current provisions related to late payments for EAGF will be maintained.


on the level of implementation (Article 112b)

The European Commission confirms that in accordance with Article 4(2) TEU, the Union respects Member States' constitutional structures and, therefore, Member States are responsible for deciding at which territorial level they wish to implement the common agricultural policy, subject to respecting Union law and ensuring its effectiveness. This principle is applicable to all four Regulations of the CAP reform.
