Proposal for a Council Regulation establishing an Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA)

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the harmonisation (as far as possible) of the Community’s external aid instruments from 2004. The draft Regulation constitutes a framework regulation, establishing a unified instrument for pre-accession assistance. One of the main characteristics of the Regulation is that, for recognised Candidate Countries, it aims at progressively adopting the rules and principles of Structural Funds/Rural Development Funds management, by making available assistance for them through three separate components (Regional Development, Rural Development and Human Resources Development).
