REGULATIONS
COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 80/2010
of 28 January 2010
amending Regulation (EC) No 718/2007 implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 1085/2006
establishing an instrument for pre-accession assistance (IPA)
THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,
Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European
Union,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1085/2006 of
17 July 2006 establishing an Instrument for Pre-Accession
Assistance (IPA) (
1
) (the IPA Regulation) and in particular
Article 3(3) thereof,
Whereas:
(1) Commission Regulation (EC) No 718/2007 of 12 June
2007 implementing Council Regulation (EC) No
1085/2006 establishing an instrument for pre-accession
assistance (IPA) (
2
) provides detailed rules for the imple­
mentation of the IPA Regulation.
(2) In the light of the experience gained in the first years of
implementation of the IPA Regulation, it has appeared
necessary to proceed with a limited revision of Regu­
lation (EC) No 718/2007 with a view to removing
some inconsistencies and erroneous cross–references,
enhancing clarity in the text of some articles and
amending some of the specific provisions with a view
to enhancing coherence, efficiency and effectiveness in
the implementation of the instrument.
(3) It is necessary to further clarify when common
provisions are subject to specific provisions under
different IPA components. The provisions concerning
the evaluation of assistance should be brought into line
with the requirements of Council Regulation (EC,
Euratom) No 1605/2002 of 25 June 2002 on the
Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of
the European Communities (
3
) and Commission
Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 2342/2002 of
23 December 2002 laying down detailed rules for the
implementation of Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No
1605/2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the
general budget of the European Communities (
4
) while
ensuring a better consistency between common
provisions applicable to all IPA components and
specific provisions applicable to each IPA component.
(4) The specific provisions concerning the Transition
assistance and institution building component should
better reflect the provisions of the IPA Regulation,
namely as regards the areas of assistance to countries
listed in Annex I to the IPA Regulation and the possi­
bility to programme assistance through multi-annual as
well as annual programmes. Furthermore, in view to
ensure a coherent approach among IPA components,
the ceiling of the Community contribution in the case
of investment operations should be raised to 85 % of the
eligible expenditure so as to align with the revised aid
intensity for investments applicable under the Regional
development component.
(5) In the specific provisions of the Cross-border cooperation
component, namely for cross-border programmes
between beneficiary countries and Member States, it
appears necessary to substantially increase the pre-
financing amount paid to the body designated by the
participating countries to receive the payments made
by the Commission.
(6) Some of the specific provisions of the Regional devel­
opment component, the Human resources development
component and the Rural development component need
to be further aligned with the rules governing the
Structural and Cohesion funds and the Rural devel­
opment funds in EU Member States, of which they are
the precursor.
(7) The provisions laid down in this Regulation are in
accordance with the opinion of the IPA Committee,
