The role of cross compliance in greening EU agricultural policy 21 Cross compliance in practice The application of cross compliance since 2005 has undoubtedly expanded the area of land subject to basic environmental management requirements. However, it has been subject to criticism from both sides. On the one hand farming organizations have expressed dissatisfaction with the burdens that they feel that it has introduced (Alliance Environnement, 2007a). On the other hand environmental organizations have argued that the potential of the cross compliance mechanism to deliver environmental benefits has not been maximized, with a number of reports setting out its shortcomings in this respect (ECA, 2008; BirdLife International, 2009).

The lack of performance indicators, for example, to measure the extent to which land abandonment has been prevented or land has been maintained in good agricultural and environmental condition, is particularly notable, an issue that has been picked up by the European Court of Auditors (ECA, 2008).
