The Commission is still receiving notifications from Member States on the implementation of the new rules of the CAP. A new wave of notifications is expected on equivalence by the 1st July, on EFA by 1st August and on monitoring data and permanent grassland ratio by 15th December. So far the notifications have confirmed the different paths chosen by Member States, with France and the Netherlands allowing for certification scheme instead of the greening measures or the Netherlands and Poland having allowed for a collective approach to EFAs. Regarding the definition of active farmer, eighth MS choose to add activities to negative list.
Also, Commissioner Hogan is still looking into possibilities to simplify the new rules, having asked Ministers, COMAGRI members and the ELO and key stakeholders for their input, ahead of the Commission reports in October. The reports should lead to delegated and implementing acts, mostly by summer 2016
