Financial recovery of ERDF may occur:
- after controls by SLC, European Commission (European Court of Auditors - ECA, European Anti-Fraud Office - OLAF) or other relevant authorities (ex.: Entrusted Entity, Accounting Authority…),
- in case total eligible costs is below 80% after validation of the FC2 by FLC.
For ongoing and completed projects, the unduly paid ERDF amounts will be deducted from the amount of the 3rd ERDF payment. For closed projects, the MUA will pay back the ineligible or undue ERDF amounts to the EUI.
