Chapter 11: Agriculture and Rural Development
Agriculture and rural development acquis aim at enabling the functioning of the EU Common Agriculture Policy (CAP). It regulates mainly aids granted to farmers and other actors (e.g. processors) in agriculture, production quotas for certain products, import restrictions and tariffs and includes measures for meeting the needs of the agricultural and rural community with less income levels, diversification of their incomes, and requires the setting up of management and quality systems such as a paying agency and; the integrated administration and control system (IACS), and the capacity to implement rural development measures. This chapter covers a large number of binding rules, many of which are directly applicable. The proper application of these rules and their effective enforcement and control by an efficient public administration are essential for the functioning of the common agricultural policy (CAP). Member States must be able to apply the EU legislation on direct farm support schemes and to implement the common market organisations for various agricultural products.
