PURPOSE: to mobilise the flexibility instrument in order to finance support for measures for managing the challenges of migration, refugee inflows and security threats.

PROPOSED ACT: Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council.

CONTENT: Council Regulation (EU, EURATOM) No 1311/2013 of 2 December 2013 lays down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020 allowing for the mobilisation of the flexibility instrument to allow the financing of clearly identified expenditure which could not be financed within the limits of the ceilings available for one or more headings of the multiannual financial framework.

In accordance with Article 11 of Council Regulation No 1311/2013 and point 12 of the Interinstitutional Agreement between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management, after having examined all possibilities for re-allocating appropriations and exhausted any unallocated margin under the expenditure heading Security and Citizenship (heading 3), the Commission proposes to mobilise the flexibility instrument in 2018 for an amount of EUR 817.1 million .

This mobilisation is intended to finance support for measures for managing the challenges of migration, refugee inflows and security threats .

The payment appropriations corresponding to the mobilisation of the flexibility instrument shall be distributed indicatively as follows:

EUR 452.9 million in 2018; EUR 207.6 million in 2019; EUR 123.3 million in 2020; EUR 33.3 million in 2021.

If the final text of the amendment to Regulation No 1311/2013 amends the amounts provided for in the Commission proposal, this proposal for the mobilisation of the flexibility instrument shall be revised accordingly.

  • PURPOSE: to mobilise the flexibility instrument in order to finance support for measures for managing the challenges of migration, refugee inflows and security threats.

    PROPOSED ACT: Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council.

    CONTENT: Council Regulation (EU, EURATOM) No 1311/2013 of 2 December 2013 lays down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020 allowing  for the mobilisation of the flexibility instrument to allow the financing of clearly identified expenditure which could not be financed within the limits of the ceilings available for one or more headings of the multiannual financial framework.

    In accordance with Article 11 of Council Regulation No 1311/2013 and point 12 of the Interinstitutional Agreement between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management, after having examined all possibilities for re-allocating appropriations and exhausted any unallocated margin under the expenditure heading Security and Citizenship (heading 3), the Commission proposes to mobilise the flexibility instrument in 2018 for an amount of EUR 817.1 million

    This mobilisation is intended to finance support for measures for managing the challenges of migration, refugee inflows and security threats.

    The payment appropriations corresponding to the mobilisation of the flexibility instrument shall be distributed indicatively as follows:

    • EUR 452.9 million in 2018;
    • EUR 207.6 million in 2019;
    • EUR 123.3 million in 2020;
    • EUR 33.3 million in 2021.

    NB: this proposal takes account of the proposal to amend Regulation No 1311/2013, referred to above, to carry out the mid-term revision of the 2014-2020 financial framework. If the final text of the amendment to Regulation No 1311/2013 amends the amounts provided for in the Commission proposal, this proposal for the mobilisation of the flexibility instrument shall be revised accordingly.
