EU - As part of the CAP, the European Commission (EC) has launched a call for tenders for a pilot project to assess farmers' costs of compliance with EU legislation in the fields of environment, animal welfare and food safety.

The purpose of the pilot project is to analyse the costs of compliance with environmental, animal welfare and food safety legislation for both EU and third country farmers, to compare the situation between the EU and main trading partner countries and to draw conclusions with respect to the impact on the competitiveness of EU agriculture.

The maximum budget attributed to this project is €1.5 million.

The deadline for submitting offers is 30 September 2011. The Commission intends to award the contract by the end of 2011, following the evaluation of the offers received. The contractor will have to carry out the study within 24 months from the signature of the contract.
