Remember your obligations – conditionality under the PS CAP 2023 – 2027

A fundamental and mandatory element of direct payments is conditionality, within which environmental and climate issues play a large role. It is a combination of existing greening and cross-compliance requirements, which include:

  • GAEC standards for good agricultural practices consistent with environmental protection;
  • Basic management requirements – SMRs.

Receipt of full support is contingent on beneficiaries’ compliance with GAEC standards and SMRs (analogous to previous cross-compliance). For failing to comply with them, the payment amount may be reduced by 3%.

GAEC and SMR also apply to water

In connection with Regulation (EU) 2021/2115 of the European Parliament and of the Council of December 2, 2021. laying down provisions on support for strategic plans drawn up by Member States under the common agricultural policy (CAP strategic plans), financed by the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and repealing Regulations (EU) No 1305/2013 and (EU) No 1307/2013, PS CAP 2023 – 2027 indicates the following water-related GAECs and SMRs:

  • GAEC 2: Peatland and Wetland Conservation;
  • GAEC Standard 4: Establish buffer zones along watercourses;
  • New SMR 1: Water Framework Directive;
  • SMR 2: Protect waters from pollution caused by nitrates of agricultural origin.

We will write in more detail about GAEC standards and SMRs in future issues of our newspaper.
