ON THE SANCTION SYSTEM OF SOCIAL CONDITIONALITY IN THE COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY (GAP)

14 November 2022

Summary

In accordance with Article 89 of the horizontal Regulation, administrative penalties shall take the form of a reduction or exclusion of the total amount of payments. [...] The calculation of such reductions and exclusions shall take into account the severity, extent, duration or recurrence and intention of the non- compliance found.... [...] it is true that the same Article 89 states that the provisions of Article 85 (2), (5), (6), which refer to percentages of 3 or 10%, apply mutatis mutandis to sanctions, but it is also true that the same provisions refer to percentages applicable to breaches of environmental and animal protection. [...] Take the realities into account For example, it seems obvious that the intentional violation of Articles 3 - 4 or 5 of the Transparent and Foreseeable Working Conditions Directive (here) cannot be compared to the violation of Article 7 of the Work Equipment Directive (article that talks about ergonomics). [...] Fatality at work lead to total exclusion of payments irrespectively of the number of employees affected.
