Press Release: The burden of red tape on farmers resulting from compulsory standards of environmental protection, public, animal and plant health and animal welfare (so-called Cross-Compliance) is very limited, according to a new report carried out for the European Commission. The report is based on research carried out in five EU Member States, which also showed that the model of direct payments to farmers chosen by each country also has a limited influence on the administrative burden they face. These results, and the proposals for simplification contained in the recent Health Check, put the Common Agricultural Policy in a good position to meet the target of a 25 percent reduction in administrative burden by 2012
