10 Regional Policy 10 State of play of negotiations on ETC programming (Art. 7 ETC Regulation) Council adopted partial general approach covering Art. 7 ETC Regulation in April 2012 (and subsequently additional elements relevant for programming) EP adopted its negotiation mandate in July 2012 Art. 7 ETC Regulation was not part of strategic programming package agreed by the co-legislators in December 2012 ETC programming provisions are currently being finalised in the context of the trilogues, also with a view to aligning the structure with the agreement reached among the co- legislators for Art. 87 CPR. => This is a very preliminary first draft

11 Regional Policy 11 Structure of the ETC template Starting point is template for programmes under the Investment for Growth and Jobs goal Adaptation of terminology and examples to multi-country context, including references to third country participation Specific elements included on implementing provisions (procedure for setting up the joint secretariat, summary description of management and control arrangements, apportionment of liabilities, use of the Euro, implementing conditions for ENI/IPA resources in transnational and interregional programmes) Reinforced references to coordination requirements with programmes under the IfGJ goal, possible links with macro- regional and sea-basin strategies

12 Regional Policy 12 Elements that require further reflection Provisions contained in Art. 87 CPR without correspondence in ETC Regulation (specific provisions for technical assistance priority axis, approach to it is outside sustainable urban development, needs of geographical areas most affected by poverty and demographic challenges) Differences from Art. 87 CPR (role of national equality body, sustainable urban development) Elements subject to "light" modification procedure More detail may be needed on specificities for interregional cooperation programmes; links with ENI/IPA/EDF

13 Regional Policy Written comments Written comments can be sent until 10 March to: REGIO-DGA1.01-WORKSHOPS-AND- 13
