Cohesion policy regulations

European Commission regulations governing cohesion policy funding from 2014.

The regulations reflect the Commission's principles of:

  • a more effective policy focusing resources on a certain number of priorities which will be geared more closely to europe's objectives of growth and employment
  • the introduction of conditions before european aid is granted and of incentive measures for those programmes which make the greatest contribution to the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy
  • more simplification, particularly by defining a core set of rules in common with the rural development policy and the common fisheries policy, which will help to reduce the administrative burden, especially on small firms

A full list of the EC regulations can be found on the European Commission website.

The commission's website also contains information in relation to delegated acts, implementing acts and commission decisions for the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds.
