Discharge procedure for 2014 budget – debate and final vote on postponed decisions

19-10-2016

In April 2016, the European Parliament (EP) granted discharge to the European Commission and most EU institutions and bodies as regards 2014 budget implementation. However, the EP decided to postpone its decisions on section II of the EU budget (European Council and Council) and on the budgets of three joint undertakings (Artemis, ENIAC and F4E-ITER). On 26-27 October, the EP is due to consider new reports tabled by its Committee on Budgetary Control on the outstanding decisions, so as to grant or refuse discharge for each case. This will finalise the 2014 discharge procedure.
