Abstract:

The 2003 reform of the CAP introduces a new system of single farm payments (income support)
and cuts the link between support and production (decoupling). The majority of common
organisations of markets (COMs) will become subject to this new system in 2005 or 2006 (with the
exception of the new Member States). Existing direct aids may be continued until 2012, subject to
certain conditions (cross-compliance), but they will be gradually reduced (modulation). Certain
crops are eligible for additional support to compensate for the loss of income resulting from
modulation and the transition to the single farm payment.
Council Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 of 29 September 2003 establishing common rules for direct
support schemes under the common agricultural policy and establishing certain support schemes
for farmers and amending Regulations (EEC) No 2019/93.
