CAP Reform 2014 - 2020
  • The Common Agricultural Policy is due to be reformed by the end of 2013. The EU Parliament and the EU Council must reach a joint decision on the final outcome. This is the first time in history of the CAP that this has been the case. The new CAP should enter into force the 1st of January 2014.

  • The European Agriculture and Fisheries Council configuration brings together Ministers from all EU member states responsible for these domains. Together they negotiate and adopt legislation. Meetings take place once a month and last 1 or 2 days.
  • Members of the European Parliament discuss the CAP reform in the Comittee of Agricultural and Rural Development (COMAGRI). The final vote on the CAP reform in the COMAGRI will take place on Januray 23 - 24 2013. This will be followed by a vote in Plenary in March 2013.
 
Outline of the reform process
2012: Co-Decision procedure by European Parliament and Council of Agricultural Ministers
2013: Implementation of the new CAP in national legislation
