"Where the information referred to in Article 91 has been appraised positively by a quality review by independent experts, the Member State may proceed with the selection of the major project. The Managing Authority shall notify the Commission of the selected major project"
"The financial contribution to the major project shall be deemed to be approved by the Commission in the absence of a decision…refusing the financial contribution within three months of the date of notification. The Commission shall refuse ....only on the grounds that it has established a significant weakness in the independent quality review"
Commission considersthat JASPERS meets the minimum criteria for an independentreview body and has proposedthat JASPERS canbe made availableas an independentqualityreview body to all Member States with major projects
Anyotherindependentreview body proposedwould have to meet the criteria for independence and quality and be acceptable to the Commission
AnyMember State whichdoes not wish to use independent experts cansubmit applications to the Commission
The report of the Independent Quality Review body (whether JASPERS or otherwise) will be prepared in good faith, drawing on its knowledge and expertise, but Member States are obliged, as they are now, to ensure compliance with EU law
Time is required to set up new appraisal structures so Member States concerned have been requested to indicate :
If they will use independent experts, as described in the draft Regulation
If they will make use of JASPERS as independent expert
