Basic rules governing the CAP

Four main regulations govern the common agricultural policy , introduced by a reform in 2013 to simplify legislation. The rules have applied since 2014.

The four regulations cover:

  • market measures (Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013): basic elements for a common organisation of markets in agricultural products, such as private storage aid for certain products listed in the regulation, etc.

The European Commission's Directorate-General for agriculture and rural development can adapt delegated and implementing acts to realise the common agricultural policy. The fundament of the common agricultural policy is set in the treaty on the functioning of the European Union (title III).
