A Simplified CAP for Europe – A Success for All

 All actors in the process should in the future pay particular attention to this aspect.

Simplifying the CAP is essential to making the agricultural economy more competitive, preserving and creating jobs and contributing to a sound development of our rural areas. This is why a simplified CAP is a success for all.

This communication will highlight the activities that have been carried out since 2005, and give indications of the resulting reduction in administrative burden for farmers and administrations. Special attention will be paid to the rolling Simplification Action Plan, the single CMO, the 2007 study on administrative burden for farms and the results of the Health Check process. To conclude, the communication will explore paths to further simplification actions in the future.

To keep the momentum going and to create an environment which establishes appropriate conditions for further simplification of the CAP, the following elements and projects are scheduled for the coming years: Common Strategy Date, cross compliance, Communications, "Harvest Experience", Quality Policy, Continuation of the Action Plan, regular revision, language use and accessibility of legal texts, continuation of sharing best practices.

The full document will be discussed in the next Agriculture and Fisheries Sectoral Meeting and any contributions you would like to make will be pointed out. These should be sent to Abigail Mamo on .
