IACSEach member state shall set up and operate an Integrated Administration and Control System. Elements of the IACS (Article 15 R 73/2009):
a computerised data base,an identification system for agricultural parcels,a system for the identification and registration of payment entitlements aid applications,an integrated control system,a single system to record the identity of each farmer who submits an aid application.a system for the identification and registration of bovine
Computerised data base (Article 16 73/2009)The computerised data base shall record, for each agricultural holding, the data obtained from aid applications.
This data base shall, in particular, allow direct and immediate consultation, through the competent authority of the Member State, of the data relating to the past year
The Member States may set up decentralised data bases on condition that these, and the administrative procedures for recording and accessing data, are designed homogeneously throughout the territory of the Member State and are compatible with one another in order to allow cross-checks.
Identification system for agricultural parcels LPIS(Article 17, R73/2009)
The identification system for agricultural parcels shall be established on the basis of maps or land registry documents or other cartographic references. Use shall be made of computerised geographical information system techniques including preferably aerial or spatial orthoimagery, with a homogenous standard guaranteeing accuracy at least equivalent to cartography at a scale of 1:10000.
Purpose of the Land Parcel Identification System
Goal: identification of each agricultural parcel declared under IACSObtained: through reference parcels providing A geographic locationIdentification of parcel extent, boundariesA reference areaOther elements of eligibility

System for the identification and registration of payment entitlements (Article 18 73/2009)The system for the identification and registration of payment entitlements shall be set up allowing verification of entitlements and cross-checks with the aid applications and the identification system for agricultural parcels.
This system shall allow direct and immediate consultation, through the competent authority of the Member State, of the data relating to at least the previous three consecutive calendar and/or marketing years.
Aid applications (Article 19 73/2009)
all agricultural parcels of the holding;the payment entitlements declared for activation;any other information provided for by this Regulation or by the Member State concerned.Each year, a farmer shall submit an application for direct payments subject to the integrated system, indicating, where applicable:
Common requests for aid applications
Aid application shall contain all information necessary to establish eligibility for the aid
Date of submission of the applicationCommon contents of the applicationthe identity of the farmerthe aid scheme or schemes concerneda statement by the farmer that he is aware of the conditions pertaining to the aid schemes in question.
Additional data for area - related aid schemesidentification of all agricultural parcels on the holding, their area their location where applicable, their use and whether the agricultural parcel is irrigated;
Requirements pertaining to livestock aid applicationsthe number of animals of each type in respect of which any aid is applied for and, for bovines, the identification code of the animalsinformation on the location or locations where the animals will be held including the period or periods concerned
If the animal is moved to another location during the retention period the farmer shall inform the competent authority in writing in advance
Verification of eligibility conditions (Article 20 73/2009)Member States shall carry out administrative controls on the aid applications to verify the eligibility conditions for the aid.Administrative checks shall be supplemented by a system of on-the-spot checks to verify eligibility for the aid. For this purpose, Member States shall draw up a sampling plan of agricultural holdings. Member States may use remote sensing and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) techniques as a means of carrying out on-the-spot checks on agricultural parcels. Each Member State shall designate an authority responsible for coordinating the checks provided for in this Chapter.Where the Member State provides for the delegation of some aspects of the work to be carried out under this Chapter to specialised agencies or firms, the designated authority shall retain control over, and responsibility for, that work.
ControlsAdministrative and on-the-spot checks shall be made in such a way as to ensure effective verification of compliance with the terms under which aids are granted and of the requirements and standards relevant for cross-compliance.
CROSS COMPLIANCEA farmer receiving direct payments shall respect: The statutory management requirements shall be established in the following areaspublic, animal and plant health; environment; animal welfare.the good agricultural and environmental condition The competent national authority shall provide the farmer with the list of statutory management requirements and good agricultural and environmental condition to be respected.
Farm advisory system Member States shall operate a system of advising farmers on land and farm managementThe farm advisory system shall cover at least the statutory management requirements and the good agricultural and environmental condition Member States may determine, in accordance with objective criteria, the priority categories of farmer that have access to the farm advisory system.
Single payment scheme Farmers shall have access to the single payment scheme if:they have been granted a payment in the reference periodthey have received the holding or part of the holding, by way of actual or anticipated inheritance, by a farmer who met the conditions they have received a payment entitlement from the national reserve or by transfer.
Calculation of the reference amountHistorical modelThe reference amount (entitlements value) shall be the three-year average of the total amounts of payments, which a farmer was granted under the support schemes
Regional modelMember States shall define the regions according to objective criteria.Member States with less than three million eligible hectares may be considered as one single region.entitlements value is calculated by dividing the regional ceiling by the number of eligible hectares in the region
GrasslandMember States may also, according to objective criteria, fix different per unit values of entitlements for hectares under grassland
National reserve Article 57 R73/2009 (71d R1782/2003)
The new Member States shall use the national reserve for the purpose of allocating, in accordance with objective criteria and in such a way as to ensure equal treatment between farmers and to avoid market and competition distortions, payment entitlements to farmers placed in a special situation.
Specific supportArticle 68 R73/2009 (Article 69 R1782/2003)Member States may grant specific support to farmers for: specific types of farming which are important for the protection or enhancement of the environment; specific agricultural activities entailing additional agri- environment benefits; to address specific disadvantages affecting farmers in the dairy, beef and veal, sheep meat and goat meat and rice sectors economically vulnerable or environmentally sensitive areas, sectors, for economically vulnerable types of farming.
