Legal basis

Commission Decision 2013/767/EU of 16 December 2013 set up a framework for the establishment of civil dialogue groups on matters relating to the common agricultural policy.

Following this decision, a call for applications was put out in April 2014. Based on the application procedure, the Commission issued a decision on the composition of thirteen civil dialogue groups in July 2014. The member organisations of the civil dialogue groups have been appointed for a seven-year mandate, which expired in July 2021 and has been prolonged by Commission Decision 2021/1112 until 31 December 2022.

Commission Decision C(2022)5535 of 3 August 2022 repeals Commission Decision 2013/767/EU with effect from 1 January 2023 and sets up seven new civil dialogue groups on matters relating to the common agriculture policy. In accordance with this decision, a call for applications was published on 27 October 2022. The deadline for submitting applications was 29 November 2022. Based on the application procedure, the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development will appoint the selected members of the civil dialogue groups.

Calls for applications

The selection criteria and terms of appointment for the current and future civil dialogue groups are outlined in their respective calls for applications.

The current thirteen civil dialogue groups will operate until the end of 2022. The members of the seven new civil dialogue groups will be appointed at the beginning of 2023 for a five–year term of office, which may be renewed.
