26. Cross Compliance

Payment under the Basic Payment Scheme is conditional on meeting the Cross Compliance conditions.

Under Cross Compliance, you must continue to comply with the Statutory Management Requirements in force for public health, animal and plant health, environmental protection and animal welfare. You must also maintain your land in Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition.

A detailed guidance booklet on Cross Compliance is available online, at https://www.ruralpayments.org and all farmers should study the requirements and ensure they understand what is involved. When you sign the Single Application Form, you are making a declaration that you have read all applicable guidance, including Cross Compliance requirements.

Failure to meet Cross Compliance conditions will result in penalties being applied to claims.
