Timeline of MFF review/revision-related events

Timeline of MFF review/revision-related events

Although the European Parliament has already launched the debate and presented a preliminary calendar of key events, the formal start of the procedure will depend on when the Commission presents the review and any proposal for revision. This has not yet been announced. As shown in the Figure, the later the presentation of the review/revision takes place, the more it may conflict or overlap with other events provided for in legislation, such as the mid-term review of sectoral policies (2017) and the presentation of a draft post-2020 MFF (by 1 January 2018). Finally, some important political events may yet have an impact on the course and direction of the debate, not least the United Kingdom’s referendum on EU membership.
