of 17 October 2022

repealing Delegated Regulation (EU) No 639/2014 supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing rules for direct payments to farmers under support schemes within the framework of the common agricultural policy and amending Annex X to that Regulation

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing rules for direct payments to farmers under support schemes within the framework of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 637/2008 and Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 (1), and in particular Articles 4(3), 8(3), 9(5), 35(1), (2) and (3), 36(6), 39(3), 43(12), 44(5), 45(5) and (6), 46(9), 50(11), 52(9), 57(3), 58(5), 59(3) and 67(1) and (2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2021/2115 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) lays down a new legal framework for the common agricultural policy (CAP) to improve its delivery on the Union’s objectives set out in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. That Regulation further specifies these Union objectives to be achieved by the CAP and defines the types of intervention as well as the common Union requirements applicable to Member States, while leaving flexibility for Member States in the design of the interventions to be provided in their CAP Strategic Plans for the period 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2027.

(2)

Regulation (EU) 2021/2115 provides for types of intervention for direct payments. As a consequence, it repeals Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 with effect from 1 January 2023.

(3)

In that context, the Commission has adopted additional requirements pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2021/2115 for the design of the interventions to be specified in the CAP Strategic Plans, namely by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/126 (3). That Delegated Regulation replaces the rules currently laid down in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 639/2014 (4).

(4)

In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, Delegated Regulation (EU) No 639/2014 should be repealed with effect from 1 January 2023. However, in accordance with Article 154(2) of Regulation (EU) 2021/2115, it should continue to apply in respect of aid applications relating to claim years starting before 1 January 2023,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Repeal and transitional provisions

Delegated Regulation (EU) No 639/2014 is repealed with effect from 1 January 2023.

However, it shall continue to apply in respect of aid applications relating to claim years starting before 1 January 2023.

Article 2

Entry into force

Done at Brussels, 17 October 2022.
