    Answer given by Mrs Reding on behalf of the Commission

    1. The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights is a Union body with legal personality. Its Director is responsible for the implementation of its budget, under the control of its Management Board, in accordance with the basic act establishing the Agency.

    2. Over the past years, the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights has been subjected to regular audits, by the Internal Audit Service of the Commission acting on behalf of the Agency and the EU Court of Auditors.  In particular, for the  financial years 2008 to 2010, the latter stated that the transactions underlying the annual accounts of the Agency had been, in all material respects, legal and regular.

    3. In addition to these controls, the Management Board of the Agency, where the two Commission representatives and the independent persons appointed by each Member States have voting rights in budget matters, adopt the Agency's annual draft and final budgets.

    4. OLAF may also intervene whenever there are sufficiently serious suspicions of fraud, corruption or irregularities detrimental to EU financial interests.
