The Commission’s assessment involved internal analyses, an open public consultation and a study conducted by an external consultant.

The evaluation concludes that, overall, the existing rules work well, are fit for purpose and meet the needs of the sectors concerned.

However, some targeted adjustments may be necessary to align the current rules with the current EU priorities, in particular the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the European Green Deal.
