Co-operation of Public and Private Sector by Development of Practical Requirements for EU Accession Countries for Land Information Systems in Respect to Agriculture

by Carsten Kragh

Key words: EU requirements, spatial reporting, declaration systems


In 1992 a reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) was introduced. The reform required a complete restructure of the aid system and, subsequently, a new spatial agricultural reporting system had to be invented and implemented in all the Member States. The reform is by far the most radical requirement imposed by the European Commission in terms of geographical reporting, and the different Member States have made substantial investments in their different Integrated Administrative Control Systems (IACS).

With the current legislation, new Member States joining the EU will have to create similar systems. Creating an IACS has been a substantial project for all the Member States and it is therefore essential for coming Member States to prepare the entry in the EU in order to use the co-financing opportunities in an optimal way and to be ready with the system within the timeframe given.
