EUROPE: EC to recover €209.6m of CAP expenditure from the Member States
A total of €209.6m (US$) of EU farm money misspent by Member States is to be claimed back, following two decisions adopted by the European Commission (EC). The money is to be recovered because of inadequate control procedures or non-compliance with EU rules on agricultural expenditure. While Member States are responsible for paying out and checking virtually all expenditure under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the EC is required to ensure that Member States have made correct use of the funds. This audit procedure is a vital instrument for controlling CAP expenditure, permitting the recovery of sums paid out without sufficient guarantees as to the legitimacy of the payments made or the reliability of the control and verification system in the Member State concerned.
