supplementing Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and repealing Council Regulations (EC) No 2328/2003, (EC) No 861/2006, (EC) No 1198/2006 and (EC) No 791/2007 and Regulation (EU) No 1255/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regards to the content and construction of a common monitoring and evaluation system for the operations funded under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund



THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and repealing Council Regulations (EC) No 2328/2003, (EC) No 861/2006, (EC) No 1198/2006 and (EC) No 791/2007 and Regulation (EU) No 1255/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council ( 1 ), and in particular Article 107(1) in conjunction with Article 109(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 107 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 provides for the establishment of a common monitoring and evaluation system with a view to measuring the performance of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). That system should help in particular to demonstrate the progress and achievements of the Common Fisheries Policy and the Union's Integrated Maritime Policy; to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of EMFF operations; to contribute to better targeted support for the Common Fisheries Policy and the Integrated Maritime Policy; to support a common learning process related to monitoring and evaluation; and to provide robust, evidence-based evaluations of the EMFF operations that feed into the decision-making process.

(2)

The content and the construction of the common monitoring and evaluation system should be defined in order to ensure that sufficient and appropriate evaluation activities are undertaken. It is therefore necessary to determine a list of common indicatorsto be used by the Member States so that data can be aggregated at Union level and the performance of the EMFF can be assessed by the Commission in relation to the policy objectives set out in Regulation (EU) No 508/2014.

(3)

According to Article 109 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 the common indicators must be applicable to each programme and must relate to the initial situation as well as to the financial execution, outputs and results of the programme. Those common indicators shall also be used for the performance review referred to in Article 21(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council ( 2 ).

(4)

The common indicators should be in accordance with the indicators set out for programme priorities in Article 27(4) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013, which include indicators related to expenditure allocated, output indicators related to the operations supported and result indicators relating to the priority concerned. They should also include context indicators related to the initial situation before the implementation of the programme.

(5)

The indicators referred to in Article 107(2) of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 relate to the impact of the programme at the level of each Union Priority and are not covered by this Regulation.

(6)

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,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:



Article 1

Content and construction of the monitoring and evaluation system

1.  The common monitoring and evaluation system referred to in Article 107 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 shall be constituted of the following elements:

(b) the set of common indicators referred to in Article 109 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014;

(c) the relevant cumulative data on operations selected for funding, as provided for in Article 97(1)(a) of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014;

(d) the annual report on the implementation of the operational programme, as provided for in Article 114 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 in conjunction with Article 50 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013;

(f) the ex ante and ex post evaluations and all other evaluation activities linked to the EMFF programme, as provided for in Articles 115, 116 and 117 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 in conjunction with Article 55, 56 and 57 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013;

(g) the performance review as provided for in Article 21(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013.

2.  When applying Articles 97(1)(a) and Articles 114 to 117 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014, in conjunction with Articles 21(1), 50, 55, 56, 57 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013, the managing authority shall use the list of common indicators referred to in Article 109 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 throughout the different elements of the common monitoring and evaluation system.
