During the April II plenary session, the European Parliament is expected to decide whether to grant discharge for the 2015 financial year to the different institutions and bodies of the European Union (EU). The debate will start with the report covering the European Commission (plus six executive agencies) which manages the biggest share of the EU general budget. Separate discharge is granted to the Commission concerning the management of the European Development Funds (EDFs), because the EDFs are not part of the general budget of the EU but based on intergovernmental agreement. The Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT) recommends the plenary should grant the Commission and all six executive agencies discharge for 2015, and also to grant discharge in respect of the implementation of the operations of the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th EDFs in that year.

The NDAPs provide financial assistance for decommissioning, dismantling and waste management projects; energy-sector projects aimed at mitigating the consequences of reactor shutdowns; and projects addressing the socio-economic consequences of decommissioning. The European Commission estimates that between 1999 and 2020, financial support for the NDAP programmes will total approximately €3.8 billion.

17-03-2017

The Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) sets the maximum level of resources ('ceiling') for each major category of EU spending for the years 2014-2020. Based on the compulsory mid-term review of the MFF, the European Commission proposes to modify the flexibility provisions and special instruments of the MFF Regulation.

Based on the compulsory mid-term review of the MFF, the European Commission proposes to modify the flexibility provisions and special instruments of the MFF Regulation. The aim is to increase the capacity of the EU budget to address unforeseen events and new priorities, against a backdrop of persistent challenges inside and outside the EU. The proposal is part of a broader package that seeks to allocate an extra €6.33 billion to job creation, growth, migration and security challenges, without modifying the MFF ceilings. In March 2017, the Council reached agreement on a text that strengthens some special instruments. The Parliament, which has long pushed for MFF revision, has now to decide whether to approve the compromise.
