Three new Members have joined the European Court of Auditors in 2008 for a renewable term of six years: Michel Cretin from France, Henri Grethen from Luxembourg and Harald Noack from Germany. They met for the first time on 10 January with their colleagues, who have been renewed in their posts: Hubert Weber from Austria, Maarten B. Engwirda from Netherlands, David Bostock from United Kingdom and Ioannis Sarmas from Greece. The function of the European Court of Auditors is to audit independently the collection and spending of European Union funds and, through this, assess the way that the EU institutions discharge these functions. The Court aims at contributing to the improvement of the financial management of European Union funds at all levels, so as to ensure maximum value for money for the citizens of the Union.
