As part of the work on the EU’s 2021-2027 budget, the European Commission proposed a set of regulations with the aim of reshaping and modernising the EU’s common agricultural policy (CAP). Put forward on 1 June 2018, the ‘CAP reform package’ was finally adopted in December 2021.

One of these regulations, the Amending Regulation, introduces changes to rules governing the common market organisation (CMO) in agricultural products (including the rules on wine), the EU quality schemes (geographical indications) and the support measures for remote regions. The aim is to equip agricultural markets and support measures to face new challenges, update provisions, simplify procedures and ensure consistency with other regulations on the future CAP.
