The Common Provisions Regulation
In December 2013, to maximize the effectiveness of European Structural and Investment (ESI) funds (which include the financial instruments for cohesion policy, rural development and fisheries), the Council adopted the Common Provisions Regulation ((EU) No 1303/2013).
