On-the-spot checks

The first level control body will organise on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis using a risk-based approach.

Public bodies and bodies governed by public law may apply for 100% of the national contribution, private non-profit bodies may apply for 5% of the national contribution to be covered by state budget co-financing.
