COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/936

of 6 June 2019

amending Implementing Regulations (EU) No 808/2014, (EU) No 809/2014 and (EU) No 908/2014 as regards financial instruments set up under the programmes for rural development

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1698/2005 (1), and in particular Article 8(3) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the financing, management and monitoring of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 352/78, (EC) No 165/94, (EC) No 2799/98, (EC) No 814/2000, (EC) No 1290/2005 and (EC) No 485/2008 (2), and in particular Articles 36(6) and 62(2)(a) hereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The possibility to set-up financial instruments combining European Structural and Investment Funds contributions with European Investment Bank financial products under the European Fund for Strategic Investments was introduced in Article 38(1)(c) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) by Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4).

(2)

This new provision applies also to the financial instruments set up under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) programmes. Some implementing rules laid down in Commission Implementing Regulations (EU) No 808/2014 (5), (EU) No 809/2014 (6) and (EU) No 908/2014 (7) contain references to financial instruments as referred to in Article 38(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 before its amendment by Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046. Therefore, a reference to the new point (c) of Article 38(1) should be introduced to the relevant provisions of those acts.

(3)

Implementing Regulations (EU) No 808/2014, (EU) No 809/2014 and (EU) No 908/2014 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Rural Development Committee and the Committee on the Agricultural Funds,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
