Carol Nolan concluded ( about Charlie McConalogue ) : “We are all aware that farm inspections in this State are essentially governed by the EU, specifically EU Regulations governing Direct Payment and Rural Development Schemes and the need to ensure compliance with Good Agricultural and Environment Condition (GAEC). "This is something that, at least in principle, most farmers are happy to accept since the vast majority are engaged in good practice as a matter of routine. "From what I am hearing however there is a problem with the application of these EU Rules, in particular the risk analysis process on which cases are being selected on a ‘risk and random basis.’ "For the farmers who are contacting me the process seems anything but ‘random.’ "In fact, in some instances farmers feel that they are being over-selected and this is having a detrimental impact not only on productivity, but also on mental health," she claimed. The TD said Minister McConalogue has told her that any amendments to the selection process would require a change in the EU regulations. She wants common sense applied. "Surely in very many cases all it would take is for a bit of cop-on to be applied and for inspectors to realise where the areas of genuine concern exist and where it is a case that a farmer is being disproportionately singled out. "No one is saying let’s abandon all inspections. But clearly, we need to look again at how the system is operating in the real world and amend it accordingly,” External link

Carol Nolan concluded ( about Charlie McConalogue ) : “We are all aware that farm inspections in this State are essentially governed by the EU, specifically EU Regulations governing Direct Payment and Rural Development Schemes and the need to ensure compliance with Good Agricultural and Environment Condition (GAEC). "This is something that, at least in principle, most farmers are happy to accept since the vast majority are engaged in good practice as a matter of routine. "From what I am hearing however there is a problem with the application of these EU Rules, in particular the risk analysis process on which cases are being selected on a ‘risk and random basis.’ "For the farmers who are contacting me the process seems anything but ‘random.’ "In fact, in some instances farmers feel that they are being over-selected and this is having a detrimental impact not only on productivity, but also on mental health," she claimed. The TD said Minister McConalogue has told her that any amendments to the selection process would require a change in the EU regulations. She wants common sense applied. "Surely in very many cases all it would take is for a bit of cop-on to be applied and for inspectors to realise where the areas of genuine concern exist and where it is a case that a farmer is being disproportionately singled out. "No one is saying let’s abandon all inspections. But clearly, we need to look again at how the system is operating in the real world and amend it accordingly,” External link
