2014-2020

This section provides information on the system set up for first level control in France for the 2014-2020 programming period. 

The costs associated with this control are indicated so that they can be planned for in project budgets. 

The system

France uses a decentralised control system. A shortlist of eligible external controllers is established at national level: 

On the basis of the above-mentioned shortlist, the project partner will have to do a tender based on price criteria in order to select the first level controller.

The approbation body is:

Hauts-de-France Region
Department of European Cooperation
151 Avenue du President Hoover 59555 Lille Cedex

Christophe Uliasz
Officer acting as National Authority
Phone: +33 3 74 27 40 56
Fax: +33 328 82 70 55

The costs

The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU regulations and programme rules.

On-the-spot checks

In compliance with the article 23 (4) of Regulation (EU) No 1299/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 and article 125 (5) and (6) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013, on-the-spot verifications are done for each project partner at least once during the project lifetime. For first level controllers controlling more than one project partner, sampling may be possible on the conditions that the method is well justified and documented.
