REPORT FROM THE COMMISSION

ANNUAL REPORT ON IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EUROPEAN FISHERIES FUND (2007)

REPORT FROM THE COMMISSION

ANNUAL REPORT ON IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EUROPEAN FISHERIES FUND (2007)

1. INTRODUCTION

On 1 January 2007 the European Fisheries Fund (EFF)[1], which covers the period 2007-2013, replaced the Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance (FIFG)[2]. The reporting on the implementation of the FIFG for the period 2000-2006 was included in the annual reports on the implementation of the Structural Funds.

In the new programming period, the EFF – unlike its predecessor, the FIFG – is no longer part of the Structural Funds, as it is included in a different heading under the financial framework. Thus there is a separate reporting mechanism for the EFF starting from 2007. This report has been compiled in accordance with Article 68 of Regulation (EC) No 1198/2006 on the EFF and covers the actual implementation of the EFF in 2007.

In addition, the first chapter of the report looks at the major events of 2007, in particular the adoption of the Implementing regulation and the guidelines for the implementation of EFF assistance, as well as the adoption of the National Strategic Plans (NSPs) and the Operational Programmes (OP).

2. BACKGROUND

The EFF programming process has been rationalised and simplified compared to the FIFG, notably by streamlining the procedures for presenting the programming documents.

The Community Support Frameworks and the Single Programming Documents, which had to be drawn up under the FIFG in the 2000-2006 period, no longer exist in the current programming period. Under the EFF, the OP is now the only programming and management document comprising also strategic elements. Each Member State has to present one single OP, covering both the Convergence and the Non Convergence regions.

The OP must be coherent with the national strategy pursued by Member States in relation to managing the various aspects of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This national strategy is now set out in the NSP. Under the EFF, the Member State adopts the NSP, following an appropriate consultation of the partners, and presents it to the Commission at the latest when submitting the OP, in accordance with Article 15 of Regulation (EC) No 1198/2006. The OP is designed to implement the policies and priorities to be co-financed by the EFF. It is drawn up in close collaboration with the regional, local, economic and social partners in the fisheries sector and with all other relevant bodies. The Member State submits its proposal for the OP to the Commission. The Commission adopts a decision approving the OP if the OP respects all criteria described in the regulation.

3. THE MAJOR EVENTS IN 2007 IN THE CONTEXT OF THE NEW PROGRAMMING PERIOD 2007-2013

3.1. Adoption of Commission Regulation 498/2007

On 26 March 2007 the European Commission adopted Regulation (EC) No 498/2007, laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1198/2006 on the European Fisheries Fund. The purpose of this Commission Regulation is to set out in detail how Member States should implement the EFF in line with the priorities laid down in the basic regulation. The implementing regulation lays down the detailed procedures to be followed by the Member States in drawing up and implementing their OPs. These rules complete the legal framework of the EFF Regulation.

3.2. Adoption of EFF Vademecum (C(2007)/3812).

In addition, the Commission adopted on 29 August 2007 guidelines providing advice on the implementation of the 2007-2013 programming period (EFF Vademecum C(2007)/3812). The Vademecum brings together different parts of the legal texts in a structured way to provide operational advice on the implementation of different provisions of these texts. These guidelines do not replace the basic legal texts. They have been prepared as a guide to facilitate the reading and understanding of the legal requirements and to help Member States and Commission services to implement the Regulations consistently.

4. ANALYSIS OF IMPLEMENTATION

4.1. Programme implementation

In 2007 23 Member States adopted their NSP and submitted it to the Commission. The NSPs were subject to an extensive bilateral dialogue between the Member States and the Commission.

Following thorough negotiations with the Member States on the OPs, the Commission adopted 19 out of 26 OPs in the third trimester of 2007, the majority in December 2007 (see table in annex IV). The Commission was unable to adopt the seven remaining OPs since they were either submitted too late or not submitted at all by the Member States in question. The remaining OPs will be adopted in 2008.

The table in annex IV shows the OPs which were adopted in 2007 and indicates the date of adoption. The table in annex V (EFF breakdown by priority axis and by Member State) shows the total EFF amount allocated to each Member States for the programming period 2007-2013, as well as the breakdown between priority axes[3] per Member State and in total.

In total the 19 Member States whose OPs were adopted in 2007 allocated the following shares to the different priority axes: the highest percentage was allocated to axis 2 (32%), followed by axis 3 (28.2%), axis 1 (26.9%), axis 4 (9.5%) and axis 5 (3.4%).

The countries which allocated the highest shares of their EFF allocation to axis 1 (fleet measures) were Italy (38%), Greece (37.2%), Spain (35.6%), the Netherlands (34.8%) and France (27.6%). Austria and Slovakia were the landlocked countries with by far the highest percentages allocated to axis 2 (89.2% and 76.5%), followed by Romania (45.5%), Bulgaria (45%) and the Czech Republic (44%). The highest allocations to measures of common interest under axis 3 can be found in Cyprus (65.5%), the Czech Republic (51%), Germany (44.1%) and France (39.4%). Regarding axis 4, the sustainable development of fisheries areas, Romania (32.5%), Latvia (23.1%), Estonia (22.8%) and Greece (16%) are in the lead.

4.2. Financial implementation

As mentioned above, due to the late adoption of the OPs, none of the Member States authorised any expenditure linked to projects in 2007 and none of the Member States used its technical assistance funds in 2007. No expenditure was made and therefore nothing can be reported on the financial implementation of the operational programmes.

4.3. Budget Implementation

In 2007, 9.93% of the appropriations for 2007-2013 were committed and 5.31% paid. This was below the initial planning expectations, and is due to the delays in the adoption of seven OPs. In 2008 execution is likely to speed up substantially since all outstanding OPs will have been adopted and the real implementation of OPs will start in that year.

The implementation of the 2007 budget was satisfactory both for the Convergence and the Non-Convergence objectives. 75.4% (72.42% for the Convergence and 84.43% for the Non-Convergence objective) of the resources available were committed, which corresponds to a 100% execution in relation to the 19 OPs adopted.

Concerning payment appropriations for the year 2007, 81.1% (76.18% for the Convergence and 98.45% for Non-Convergence objective) of the resources were used. Once again, the amounts not used had originally been foreseen to pay the pre-financing advance of the seven non adopted OPs.

Annex I shows the financial execution for the Convergence objective.

Annex II shows the financial execution for the non-Convergence objective.

Annex III shows the total financial execution of both the Convergence and non-Convergence objective.

4.4. Commitment appropriations carried over from 2007 to subsequent years:

Since seven OPs could not be adopted in 2007, the Commission proposed on 14 March 2008 to transfer the allocations not used in 2007 to subsequent years. This proposal was authorised by the European Parliament and the Council by Decision 2008/371/EC[4]. The amount in question totals EUR 117 258 873 for the Convergence objective and EUR 22 032 789 for the non-Convergence objective.

5. USE OF THE COMMISSION'S TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Article 46(1) of the EFF Regulation states that at the initiative of and/or on behalf of the Commission, subject to a ceiling of 0.8 % of its annual allocation, the EFF may finance the preparatory, monitoring, administrative and technical support, evaluation and audit measures necessary for implementing this Regulation.

In accordance with Article 46(4) of the EFF Regulation, DG MARE requests the opinion of the European Fisheries Fund Committee (comprising representatives of the Member States) on the forecasts of the use of its technical assistance budget. DG MARE consulted the EFF Committee on the proposed spending of the technical assistance in the period 2007 to 2009 on 25 June 2007. The EFF Committee gave its favourable opinion on 11 July 2007.

5.1. Implementation of Commission's Technical Assistance

In 2007 the Commission used the EFF technical assistance at its disposal for the following purposes:

5.1.1. Conferences

1. A conference on "EFF, Inland Fishing, and Aquaculture Production Methods Enhancing the Environment[5]" was held on 27-29 June 2007 in Bucharest, Romania. The objective of the conference was to discuss new EFF measures for inland fisheries, EFF aqua-environmental measures and the role of aquaculture as a means of maintaining the biodiversity of wetlands. The amount committed for this event was EUR 161 696.

2. As part of the preparation for a review of the 2002 Community Strategy for Sustainable Development of Aquaculture[6] (COM(2002)511) and following on from a large consultation process, DG MARE organised a conference on "European Aquaculture and its Opportunities for Development" on 15-16 November 2007 in Brussels. The amount committed for the event was EUR 138 903.

5.1.2. Studies

3. The Commission commissioned a study on the "Image survey on the fisheries and aquaculture sector". The objective of the study was to understand the consumers' perception of fisheries and of fisheries and aquaculture products and to identify communications levers to improve it. The amount committed for the study was EUR 249 100.

4. The Commission also commissioned a study on the "Community intervention in the area of inland fishing". The objective of the study is to define inland fishing, to evaluate its socio-economic importance and identify appropriate actions which should benefit from EFF support. The amount committed for this study is EUR 249 829.

5.1.3. Communication and publications

The Commission contracted a service provider to update the DG MARE webpages on the EFF and to produce several publications on the EFF and other products for communication purposes. The amount committed for these services was EUR251 555.2.

5.1.4. Information technology

The Commission committed amounts for the development and the maintenance of applications for managing the EFF and the FIFG, as well as informatics material. The amount committed for these services was EUR 312 350.

5.1.5. Non-permanent staff

In 2007 the EUR 350 000 were committed for the salaries of non-permanent staff.

6. EUROPEAN FISHERIES FUND COMMITTEE

Two meetings on the European Fisheries Fund Committee were held in 2007. During the committee meeting on 23 April 2007 the Member States were informed on the following issues: the procedures and state of play for the NSPs and the OPs, the structure and the main elements of the EFF Vademecum, the demarcation lines between the EFF and other Funds and the role and tasks of the "Support Unit for the European Fisheries Areas Network (FAR-NET)".

The EFF Committee was also informed that a favourable opinion had been given on 6 April 2007 on the working papers on ex ante evaluation for the EFF and on indicators for monitoring and evaluation. In addition the Commission informed the committee on the need for a corrigendum of the implementing regulation, the procedure for the first forecast of likely payment applications in 2007 and the state of play for the new state aid rules for fisheries.

During the committee meeting on 24 September 2007 the Commission submitted to the committee the following issues: the procedures and state of play for the NSPs and the OPs and a note of the Commission services regarding eligible expenditure in the 2007-2013 programming period.

In addition the Commission presented the guidance note on the Compliance Assessment exercise, the model Report and the checklist for the Compliance Assessment of Member States’ management and control systems for the EFF. Member States were also informed about the state of play of SFC2007 and reminded of their obligations. The Commission presented Commission Regulation (EC) No 875/2007 and informed the Member States about the state of play of the procedure for the adoption of the new block exemption Regulation and the new guidelines for the examination of state aid to fisheries and aquaculture.

7. CONSISTENCY AND COORDINATION

In accordance with Article 6 of the EFF the Commission has ensured coordination and consistency between assistance from the EFF and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, the Cohesion Fund and other Community financial instruments by making sure that Member States clearly define demarcation lines for support under the different funds in the OP and set up appropriate coordination mechanisms between the authorities responsible for the implementation of these funds.
