Cross compliance review

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

"Cross Compliance" (CC) stands for basic requirements for farmers.
Since January 1, 2005, farmers who receive EU-funded subsidies must comply with requirements that go beyond the application requirements.
The cross-compliance regulations apply equally to recipients of EU direct payments under the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) and recipients of payments from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD - including compensation payments for disadvantaged areas, Natura 2000 premiums and agri-environmental and climate measures). In accordance with Art. 93 in conjunction with. Annex II of Regulation (EU) No. 1306/2013, it covers three areas:

  • Environmental protection, climate change, good agricultural condition of land,
  • human, animal and plant health and
  • animal welfare.

If the existing technical regulations for these three areas are not complied with in full or in part, sanctions will be imposed. Depending on the severity, extent, duration or frequency of the violations, a reduction of between 1% and 100% of the payments applied for in the respective calendar year is imposed.
Every year, at least 1% of all payment recipients in Schleswig-Holstein are checked by the responsible control authorities for compliance with the cross-compliance requirements. Higher inspection rates apply for individual requirements.
