REPORT FROM THE COMMISSION

SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT ON IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EUROPEAN FISHERIES FUND (2012)

ANALYSIS PER MEMBER STATE

Belgium

The EFF OP covers the territory of Belgium  which is designated as a non-convergence region (except Hainaut). Total eligible public expenditure of the OP amounts to EUR 48 239 502, out of which the EFF allocation amounts to EUR 26 261 648.

Allocation between priority axes in 2012: 44% for axis 1, 13% for axis 2, 30% for axis 3; 7% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: There is good progress in the implementation of the OP. The management and control system is functioningyet the 2012 ACR delivered a qualified opinion and the Commission had to reject the document on the basis of missing and incomplete information. The error rate reported by end 2012 was 3.9%.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 2 921 550 was committed by the Member State and EUR 4 612 318 EFF expenditure was certified to the Commission.

Bulgaria

The OP covers the entire territory of Bulgaria which is designated as a convergence region. The total eligible public expenditure of the OP amounts to EUR 102 546 648, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 75 876 747.

Allocation between priority axes: 10 % for axis 1, 45 % for axis 2, 25 % for axis 3, 15 % for axis 4 and 5 % for axis 5.

Overall assessment: In 2012 Bulgaria showed better progress in implementation of the OP which translated in higher commitments at national level but the payment rates remained low.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 33 325 469 was committed by the Member State and EUR 12 225 681 was certified to the Commission. Until the end of 2012 in total the EFF amount of EUR 13 301 314.59 has been paid by the Commission (pre-financing of EUR 11 201 359.11 not included.)

The functioning of the management and control system for the EFF is considered as satisfactory (assessed as category 2.)

Czech Republic

The OP covers the entire territory of the Czech Republic with the exception of Prague region and is designated as a convergence region.

The total eligible OP public expenditure is EUR 36 142 234, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 27 106 675.

Allocation between priority axes: almost equally distributed between Axis 2 and 3 (53% and 42% respectively) and 5% for Axis 5.

Overall assessment: good progress in implementation. According to an audit carried out by DG MARE in January 2013, the overall effectiveness of the management and control system has been classified in category 4: "Essentially does not work".

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 1 808 250 was committed by the Member State and EUR  4 751 403.43 was certified to the Commission.

Denmark

The OP covers the entire territory of Denmark which is designated as a non-convergence area.

Total eligible public expenditure amounts to EUR 238 840 272 out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 133 675 169.

Allocations between priority axes: 24.7% for axis 1, 17.4% for axis 2, 43.4% for axis 3, 11.9% for axis 4 and 2.6% for axis 5

Overall assessment: The OP has a satisfactory rate of implementation. Concerning the management and control system, the audit authority delivered for 2012 an unqualified opinion with a category 2 overall level of assurance: audits on operations resulted in  a 4.06% projected error rate and a residual error rate of  1.11%.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 20 284 263 was committed by the Member State and EUR 15 682 178.48 was certified to the Commission.

Germany

The OP covers the entire territory of Germany with the exception of the Länder Hamburg, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. The Länder Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and the region of Luneburg in Lower Saxony are designated as convergence regions and the rest of the Länder as non-convergence regions.

The total eligible public expenditure amounts to EUR 233 668 166, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 149 121 176.

Allocation between priority axes: 4.41% for axis 1, 34.04% for axis 2, 45.38% for axis 3, 14.04% for axis 4 and 2.12% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP has a rather slow rate of implementation. The management and control system is functioning well and has been evaluated in the 2012 Annual Control Report  as belonging to category "1" with error rates of 0.01% for the convergence area and 0.05% for non-convergence.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 17 101 305 was committed by the Member State and EUR 19 607 714 was certified to the Commission.

Estonia

The OP covers the entire territory of Estonia which is designated as a convergence region.

Total eligible public expenditure of the OP amounts to EUR 112 757 386, out of which EFF allocation is EUR 84 568 039.

The allocation between priority axes: 18% for axis 1, 29% for axis 2; 25% for axis 3, 23% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The programme implementation is running smoothly. For 2012, the audit authority delivered a qualified opinion with an overall assessment of category 3. The error rate reported was 3.46%, which gives grounds for reservation and interruption nof payments in 2013. Aspects needing clarification which related to the implementation of Article 25.2  lea to further interruption of payments under this article in 2012.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 11 117 908 was committed by the Member State and EUR  4 827 805 was certified to the Commission.

Ireland

The Irish OP covers the entire country which is designated as a non-convergence region.

Total public contribution amounts to EUR 65 681 039, out of which EFF allocation is EUR 42 266 603.

Allocation between priority axes: Following OP revision: 70.8% for axis 1, 14.8% for axis 2, 11.9% for axis 3, 1.9% for axis 4 and 0.6% for axis 5.

Overall assessment:  

The OP implementation significantly improved compared with 2011. Progress is due to the broadening of the OP scope: measures in axis 2 have been introduced, as well as technical assistance support (axis 5), while the allocations for the remaining axes (1, 3 and 4) decreesad. However, results are still expected for axis 4 where no project has been initiated yet.

In 2012, an amount of EUR 2 555 483 was committed by the Member Stae and EUR 96 217 was certified to the Commission (difference between the EFF amounts declared in the first cost declaration of 4.5.2010 and the second one of 22.2.2012).

No significant deficiencies were identified in the functioning of the management and control system. Moreover, in order to better address the changes in the OP, it has been updated. The annual control report and audit opinion were submitted in time and accepted by the Commission. The error rate calculated by the Audit Authority is 1.65% (regarding Axis 3).

Greece

Greece represents 4.83% of the total EFF amount. The OP covers the whole territory of Greece (the regions of Sterea Ellada and South Aegean are non-convergence regions (NCVG) while the rest of the country is a convergence region – CVG.)

The total public contribution amounts to EUR 274 105 143 out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 207 832 237 (EUR 176 836 728 for the 11 CVG regions and EUR 30 995 509 for the 2 NCVG.)

Allocation between priority axes: 37.18% was allocated to Axis 1, 28. 72% to Axis 2, 15.55% to Axis 3, 16.02% to Axis 4,and 2.53% to Axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP has made significant progress in terms of its implementation both at operational and financial level. The increase in the OP absorption rate, currently amounting to 50%, is also related to the use of the provisions laid under Regulation (EU) No 387/2012 allowing for a 10% top-up since the date (11 May 2010) the Intercreditor Agreement and the Loan Facility Agreement for Greece entered into force. The management and control system is functioning well (assessed as category 2.)

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 23 634 198.55 was committed by the Member State and EUR 26 878 883.21 was certified to the Commission. Until the end of 2012, in total, the EFF amount of EUR 104 004 503.55 has been paid (pre-financing of EUR 2 761 418.52 not included.)

Spain

The Spanish OP covers Galicia, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura, Andalucia, Principado de Asturias, Region de Murcia, and Ciudades autonomas de Ceuta y Melilla as convergence regions and the rest of the country as a non-convergence region.

Total public contribution amounts to EUR 2 115 720 056, out of which EFF allocation is EUR 1 131 890 912.

Allocation between priority axes: 41.9% for axis 1, 28.9% for axis 2, 22.8% for axis 3 and 4.7% for axis 4.

Overall assessment: The implementation of the OP slowded down in 2012 in the convergence area. In this area, total public expenditure certified in 2012 was 30% less than what had been certified in 2011 and the 2011 figure was already 40% lower than the 2010 figure. In the non-convergence area, after a 65% fall in 2011, in 2012 the total certified public expenditure increased but was still 20% lower than the 2010 amount. So far, the impact of the overall slow down in the implementation has been mitigated by the increase in the EU co-funding rates. These rates have however been set to their maximum amount end 2012.. By the end of 2012, 70% of the EFF amount was comitted and 46% had been certified.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 235 602 496.34 was committed by the Member State and EUR 179 810 719.16 was certified to the Commission (difference between the EFF amount declared in the 28.12.2012 cost declaration and the EFF amount declared in the 22/12/2011 cost declaration).

Commission's services analysed the functioning of management and control systems for each OP taking into account 15 different key regulatory requirements By the end of 2012, the conclusion was "works partially; substantial improvements are needed". The Commission interrupted payment deadlines as soon as there wass evidence to suggest a significant deficiency in the management and control system or when the Authorising Officers by Sub-Delegation have to carry out additional verifications. As a consequence, by the end of 2012 an amount of EUR 9 376 658.28 was interrupted.

France

The OP covers four convergence regions, Guadeloupe, Guyane, Martinique and Réunion (the DOMs) and the rest of the country designated as non-convergence region.

Current total public contribution amounts to EUR 562 950 450.06 (following 3rd OP modification on 04.05.2011 (C(2011)2935) out of which EFF allocation is EUR 216 053 084.

Allocation between priority axes: 30.1% for axis 1, 25.1% for axis 2, 41.0% for axis 3, 2.6% for axis 4 and 1.2% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: By the end of 2012, 68% of the EFF amount was commited and 41% had been certified to the Commission. In non-convergence regions implementation was very high for axis 1 (mainly for permanent and temporary cessation of fishing activities) while lagging behind for other axes. Implementation in convergence regions is very slow due to administrative delays, and the difficulties in identifying new projects and finding private funding.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 20 791 821,00 was committed by the Member State and EUR 18 612 226,15 was certified to the Commission. On 15 february 2013 the 10th and 11th payment claims (31.225.930,41 €) received in December 2012 was interrupted as significant deficiencies were identified in the management and control system and the error rate (4,025%) was above 2%. The interruption was lifted on 15.03.2013.

Italy

The OP includes, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Sicily as convergence regions and the rest of the country as a non-convergence area.

The total public contribution amounts to 848 685 708 out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 424 342 854 (EUR 318 281 864 for convergence regions and EUR 106 060 990 for non-convergence.)

Allocation between priority axes: 39% for axis 1, 25% for axis 2, 25.5% for axis 3, 5.5% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: Italy has a large programme with substantial allocation to axis 1 representing a major challenge for absorption. The complex management system whereby the regions manage their share of the OP, and delays in the implementation of Axis 3 and 4 contributed to the low rate of absorption in the earlier stage of the programme. Eventually, in 2012 the Regions managed to set up 43 FLAGs under Axis 4, although no expenditure was reported yet. Despite the economic crisis, Italy avoided de-commitmtnet in 2012 mainly thanks to the high implementation rate of Axis 1. In general, measures managed by the central Managing authority and by non-convegence regions had better implementration rate than in convergence regions. It must be noted that due to serious deficiencies identified in the Managament and Control System the Commission services did not reimburse any certified payment applications in 2012.  

Until the end of 2012, an EFF amount of EUR  78 148 881.76 was committed by the Member State and EUR 59 016 195.95 was certified to the Commission.

Cyprus

Cyprus represents 0.46% of the total EFF amount. The OP covers the entire territory of the Republic of Cyprus which is designated as a non-convergence region. The total eligible public expenditure of the OP amounts to EUR 39 448 836, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 19 724 418.

EFF allocation between priority axes: 31.18% for Axis 1, 13.18% for Axis 2, 48.03% for Axis 3, 5.07% for Axis 4, and 2.53% for Axis 5.

In 2012, the OP was modified in terms of its financial table (Commission Decision C (2012)8773 of 05.12.2012.)

Overall assessment: The OP progresses very well both in financial and operational terms. The Managing Authority has issued calls for expression of interest activating measures under all Priority Axes of the OP. There is no N+2 risk for de-commitment until the end of the programming period. The management and control system is functioning well (assessed as category 2.)

In 2012, the EFF amount of EUR 1 712 030.00 was committed by Cyprus and EUR 2 268 023 was certified to the Commission. Until the end of 2012, in total, the EFF amount of EUR 12 718 790 has been paid by the Commission (pre-financing of EUR 29 096 513.18 not included.)

Allocation between priority axes: 21% for axis 1, 42% for axis 2, 24% for axis 3, 9% for Axis 4 and 4% for Axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP has a good execution rate and the implementation is running smoothly. The management and control system is functioning well; in the 2012 annual control report it has been evaluated as category "1" – functions well, only small improvements are necessary. The reported error rate was 1.18%.

In 20121, an EFF amount of EUR 23 364 703 was committed by the Member State and EUR 21 239 504 was certified to the Commission.

Allocation between priority axes in 2012: 14% for axis 1, 51% for axis 2, 18% for axis 3, 12% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The implementation of the programme is running smoothly, with considerable progress in priority axes 1 and 2 and some delays in axis 4 and 3. In the 2012 annual control report the management and control system received an unqualified opinion and has been evaluated as category "1". The reported error rate was 0%.In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 12 453 342 was committed by the Member State and EUR 5 503 907 was certified to the Commission.

The Hungarian OP covers Budapest area (Közép-Magyarország) as a non-convergence region and the rest of the country as a convergence region.

The total public contribution is EUR 46 678 241, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 34 769 572 (EUR 34 291 357 for convergence regions and EUR 478 215 for the non-convergence region).

Allocation between priority axes: 79.5% for axis 2; 15.5% for axis 3 and 5.0% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP rate of implementation is good for Axis 2, but rather slow for Axis 3. The management and control system is functioning well : in the annual control report it has been evaluated as category "1" – functions well, only small improvements are necessary. The reported error rate was 0%.

Malta

The OP covers the entire territory of the country which is designated as a whole as a convergence region.

The total public contribution amounts to EUR 11 163 105.00, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 8 372 329.

Allocation between priority axes: 25.98% for axis 1, 20.4% for axis 2, 48.9% for axis 3, and 4.7% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: In Malta the EFF Operational Programme was implemented smoothly with significant progress made in Axis 1 – the objectives for de-commissioning BFT-vessels were largely exceeded. The most substantial project of the OP (nearly 27% of the whole OP budget), the new fish market, was finally launched after a long delay caused by environmental licensing and works are advancing;  port installations were further up-graded.

No major difficulties are foreseen in the implementation of the Operational Programme.

In the beginning of the year the Managing Authority was shifted from the Resources (Fisheries) towards the Office of the Prime Minister where the administration of the Structural Funds is situated. This change led to a second modification of the Operational Programme.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 5 298 418.06 was committed by the Member State, and expenditure of EUR 2 981 325.27 was certified to the Commission.

The budgetary Commitment for 2010 could be absorbed along with a comfortable margin of the slice for 2011 – no de-commitments had to be made so far.

The Management and Control System is functioning well (assessed as category 1.)

Until the end of 2012, in total, the EFF amount of EUR 2 981 325.27 has been paid (pre-financing of EUR 1 172 126.06 not included.)

The OP covers the entire territory of the Netherlands which is designated as a whole as a non-convergence region. Total eligible public expenditure of the OP amounts to EUR 120 578 417, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 48 578 417.

Allocation between priority axes: 35% for axis 1; 15% for axis 2; 35% for axis 3; 10% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP has a satisfactory commitment rate but is lagging behind with payments because of slower than expected implementation, particularly in the context of innovative projects.  The monitoring and control system is functioning. The reported error rate for 2012 was 1.24%.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 6 877 667 was committed by the Member State and EUR 5 767 364 was certified to the Commission.

Austria

The Austrian Operational Programme covers the entire territory of Austria which is designated as a non-convergence region with one convergence region (Burgenland).

Total eligible public expenditure of the OP amounts to EUR 10 393 753, out of which the EFF allocation amounts to EUR 5 259 318, divided between the convergence (EUR 249 769 with EUR 187 326 EFF allocation) and non-convergence region (EUR 10 143 984 with EUR 5 071 992 EFF allocation).

The allocation is almost entirely focused on axis 2 (98%).

Overall assessment: There is very good progress in the implementation of the OP. The management and control system is functioning well and has been evaluated in the ACR 2012 as belonging to category "1" with error rates of 0.00% for the convergence area and 0.93% for non-convergence.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR  994 549 was committed by the Member State and EUR 707 931 was certified to the Commission.

Poland

The OP covers the entire territory of Poland which is designated as a whole as a convergence region.

The total eligible public expenditure amounts to EUR 978 790 099, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 734 092 574.

Initially, the allocation between priority axes was 23% for axis 1, 20% for axis 2, 20% for axis 3, 32% for axis 4, and 5% for axis 5. Following an OP modification on 21 December 2011 (decision C(2011) 9964), the allocation between priority axes is as follows: 19.1% for axis 1, 22.2% for axis 2, 21.7% for axis 3, 32% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The implementation level was further improving in 2012, notably in axes 2 and 4. With the annual control report for 2012, an unqualified opinion was issued and the system was assessed as category 2. The reported error rate was 0.01%.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 155 113 584.50 was committed by the Member State and EUR 121 804 120.80 was certified to the Commission.

Portugal

The Portuguese OP includes Lisbon and the autonomous Region of Madeira as a non-convergence regions and the rest of the country as a convergence regions. Total public contribution amounts to EUR 325 790 279, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 246 485 249.

Allocation between axes: 25.5% for axis 1, 30.10% for axis 2, 33.84% for axis 3, 7.06% for axis 4 and 3.5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The implementation of OP in 2012 faced serious difficulties due to the economic and financial crisis in which the country finds itself. Throughout the year, a slowdown of the program deepened due to the difficulties in the public finances, but also in access to credit by the private beneficiaries.  The overall rate of commitment was 66% for convergence and 60% for non-convergence regions. The management and control system was accepted by the Commission.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 160 595 062 was committed by the Member State and EUR 91 524 720.38 was certified to the Commission.

In 2012, no significant shortcomings were identified in the functioning of the management and control system.  On the basis of the annual control report the Commission considers that the management and control systems meet the requirements set out in Article 61 (1) e) of Council Regulation (EC) N° 1198/2006. The total error rate calculated by the Audit Authority is 1.58%.

Romania

The Romanian OP covers the entire territory of the country which is designated as a whole as a convergence region.

The total eligible public expenditure of the programme amounts to EUR 307 527 525 out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 230 645 644, following the last modification of the OP with the Commission Decision C(2012)8772 of 04.12.2012. The allocation of the EFF funds between priority axes, following this last modification of the OP, is: 2.70% for axis 1, 53.64% for axis 2, 13% for axis 3, 23.40% for axis 4 and 7.26 % for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP is a large programme in financial terms if compared with the size of the fisheries sector; implementation of the OP in 2012 was marked by the interruption of payments that was initiated on 13 January 2012 following a negative Audit Report of the Romanian Audit Authority on the functioning of the management and control system, and lasted the entire year. Only at the end of the year did the MA manage to make significant progress in unblocking payments that ultimately resulted in resuming payments at mid-2013. Nevertheless, the end of 2012 was marked by a large de-commitment amounting EUR 22 354 716 - almost 10 % of the entire EFF allocation. The high turnover of personnel continued with a series of staff changes at hierarchical levels affecting the OP implementation at mid-2012.

Romania made some progress on Axis 4 in 2012, which led to the selection of 14 FLAGs at the beginning of 2012, though the rest of the year was lost for the FLAGs. The Romanian Ministry of Finance constantly refused to allow pre-financing for FLAGs though they are available under Leader  for the Local Action Groups (LAGs), leaving the FLAGs alone to search for financial resources themselves.  This situation was reconsidered by the Romanian authorities at the end of 2013.

Axis 2 continues to be the one with the most significant progress in implementation. Thus, considering the information provided in the Annual Implementation Report at the end of 2012, 140 financing requests were selected EUR 94,03 mil. were contracted and EUR 60,11 million were paid. The total absorption rate was around 36,76%. The indicators achieved so far exceeded the objectives set for 2013 in terms of production of aquaculture and the percentage of environmental friendly projects.

Until the end of 2012, a total amount of EUR 52 599 601.98 was committed by the Member State and EUR 49 109 010.52 was certified and requested to be paid by the Commission.

The Management and Control System is now assessed as Category 2.

Slovenia

The OP covers the entire territory of the country which is designated as a whole as a convergence region.

The total public contribution amounts to EUR 28 853 712, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 21 640 283.

Allocation between priority axes: 10% for axis 1, 37% for axis 2, 35% for axis 3, 10% for axis 4 and 8% for axis 5.

Until the end of 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 15 052 121.87 was committed by the Member State, and expenditure of EUR 9 007 459.94 was certified to and paid by the Commission.

Slovenia continued its heavy investment in the up-grading of fishing harbours and gave widespread support to aquaculture be it in fresh- or seawater; Axes 1 and 4 were implemented to a large extent: a capacity reduction of over 35% in tonnage and nearly 17% in engine power was performed. Almost 57% of the Axis 4 budget was committed and 32.5% paid to the beneficiaries.

Overall assessment: No major difficulties are foreseen in the implementation of the Operational Programme.

The Management and Control System remained unchanged (category 2.)

The budgetary Commitment for 2010 could be absorbed along with a comfortable margin of the slice for 2011 – no de-commitments had to be made so far.

Slovakia

The OP covers the entire territory of the country which is designated as a Convergence region, with the exception of Bratislava and surrounding districts in Non-Convergence.

The total OP public expenditure was reduced from EUR 18 922 750, applying the rule of automatic de-commitment to EUR 18 045 728, out of which EFF allocation is EUR  13 123 309.

Allocation between priority axes was also modified with this decision:  87% for axis 2,  8% for axis 3 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The slow initial progress in the implementation improved during 2012. However, axis 3 and the non-convergence region continue to be a concern with very small commitment rates. Slovakia reported an error rate of 0.05% in the 2012 annual control report. The overall effectiveness of the management and control system has been classified in category 2.

In  2012, an EFF amount of EUR  45 487 was committed by the Member State and EUR  0 was certified to the Commission due to the payment interruption. EUR  380 125 in convergence objective and EUR 76 496 in non-convergence objective was de-committed.

Finland

The OP covers the entire territory of the country which is designated as a non-convergence region. It also includes support for the Åland Islands.

The total eligible public expenditure of the programme is EUR 91 848 827, out of which EFF allocation is EUR 39 448 827.

Allocation between priority axes: 8.7% for axis 1, 43.1% for axis 2, 37.5% for axis 3, 9.1% for axis 4 and 1.6% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP has a good rate of implementation. Following the 2011 Annual Control Report, an Action Plan was established by the Commission,which has been implemented successfully and after which the interruption of payments due to the higher error rate was lifted at the end of the year. In the AAR 2012 there is no reservation as the error rate is below the materiality threshold of 2%.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 4 251 714.60 was committed by the Member State and EUR 6 202 396 was certified to the Commission.

Sweden

The OP covers the entire territory of the country which is designated as a whole as a non-convergence region.

Total eligible public expenditure amounts to EUR 104 774 205, out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 54 664 803.

Allocation between priority axes: 25% for axis 1, 20% for axis 2, 35% for axis 3, 15% for axis 4 and 5% for axis 5.

Overall assessment: The OP has a satisfactory rate of implementation. The monitoring and control system is functioning but some improvements are needed. The reported error rate for 2012 was 3.13%. Consequently, payments were interrupted in February 2013. In March 2013, the Audit Authority indicated that additional inelibigle expenditure had been identified. In November 2013, the payment interruption was lifted as it could be confirmed that the necessary corrective actions had been taken.

In 2012, an EFF amount of EUR 7 950 351 was committed by the Member State and EUR 5 300 076 was certified to the Commission.

United Kingdom

The OP covers Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, West Wales and the Valleys, Highlands and Islands as convergence regions and the rest of the UK as non-convergence region.

The total OP public expenditure is EUR 246 800 000 out of which the EFF allocation is EUR 137 827 889.

Allocation between priority axes for all areas in 2012: 28.8% for axis 1, 24.4% for axis 2, 36.0% for axis 3, 8.4% for axis 4 and 2.5 % for axis 5.

Overall assessment: As in previous years, EFF implementation progress varies between the devolved administrations. While England and Scotland show progress, Wales and Northern Ireland are lagging behind.

In 2012, an EFF amount EUR 16 981 425,89 was committed by the Member State and EUR 20 788 147,14 was certified to the Commission.

 

In 2012, significant deficiencies were identified in the functioning of the management and control system. The Annual Audit and Control Report was not submitted in time, therefore there was no information on the error rate in 2012. In addition, the description of the management and control system of Axis 4 in the UK has not yet been endorsed. Due to these problems all payments have been interrupted.
