COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1232/2014

of 18 November 2014

amending Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 in order to adapt references therein to Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council and correcting Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 laying down common provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, the Cohesion Fund, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and laying down general provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, the Cohesion Fund and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 8 and the fifth subparagraph of Article 22(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In order to ensure that the necessary legislation is in place for the programming of the European Structural and Investment Funds (‘ESIF funds’) and to allow for the timely adoption of the relevant operational programmes, Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 (2) was adopted prior to the adoption of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3).

(2)

Subsequent to the adoption of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014, certain references in Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 to the future Union legal act on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (‘EMFF’) should be replaced by references to Regulation (EU) No 508/2014.

(3)

As far as the EMFF is concerned, weightings to measures set out in the future Union legal act on the EMFF as regards the level of support for climate change objectives for each of the five ESIF funds as adopted by Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 were attached in a provisional way. References in Annex III to Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 should therefore be aligned with the final numbering of the provisions in Regulation (EU) No 508/2014.

(4)

In order to ensure that in the context of the performance framework the achievement of the milestone and target for the financial indicator can be assessed on the basis of the payment applications submitted to the Commission, the incorrect reference in Article 5(2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 to point (c) of Article 126 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 should be corrected into a reference to point (a) of Article 126 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013.

(5)

In order to allow for the prompt application of the measures provided for in this Regulation, this Regulation should enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Coordination Committee for the European Structural and Investment Funds,

(7)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 215/2014 should therefore be amended and corrected accordingly,
