The European Commission has today published further detailed rules relating to the implementation of the CAP reform.

These include delegated and implementing acts linked to support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) (supplementing the "Rural Development" Basic Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013).

Background

"Delegated acts" supplement or amend legislative acts in relation to elements that are not considered essential, while "implementing acts" are adopted by the Commission to ensure that legislative acts are applied in a uniform way in all Member States.
