Control system

This section provides information about the control system and national guidance set up in the Netherlands for the 2021-2027 programming period.

The control system

Netherland uses a decentralised control system. The approbation body will approve an independent, qualified controller based on a proposal made by the project partner.

The costs

The costs resulting from the control are borne by the project partners and can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU regulations and programme rules. The costs will be the outcome of the procurement process and negotiations between the project partner and the party doing the verifications.

These costs should therefore be planned in the project budget.

On-the-spot checks

At least one "on-the-spot check" (done on-the-spot, not virtually) will be carried out during the project lifetime in projects where partners report equipment and/ or infrastructure & works costs related to a pilot action.

Based on their professional judgement, the controller can however decide to carry out an on-the-spot check for a project not reporting pilot equipment/infrastructure costs, if they deem that it has an added value for their check (e.g. in case of suspicion of fraud, issues with the partner reporting / understanding of requirements, doubts about the proper functioning of internal processes, etc.).
