The Commission will adopt its annual progress reports under the cooperation and verification mechanism for Bulgaria and Romania. This will be the fifth annual report since the mechanism was established.

1.

Achtergrond

The co-operation and verification mechanism (CVM) was established on the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the EU to help both countries put in place an impartial, independent and effective judicial and administrative system similar to those of other Member States and capable of meeting the obligations of EU membership. This included the capacity to fight corruption and in the case of Bulgaria, the fight against organised crime. Progress is assessed against the commitments made by the two countries which are set out in four benchmarks for Romania and six benchmarks for Bulgaria.
