There are no changes to the rules but there are some changes to the way cross compliance is run, that you may benefit from. Such as:

  • Improvements in the way they communicate with farmers following some cross compliance visits by RPA field officers
  • When assessing how severe a non-compliance is, where appropriate, they’ll take account of how you’ve engaged with the rules, any possible harm to the environment, or level of risk to public or animal health.
