AMENDMENTS TO THE AGREEMENT
Actions should be carefully planned in advanced and all the known circumstances must be taken into account when preparing the proposal.
However, during the implementation, there may be well-justified circumstances that make it necessary to modify the Agreement after it has entered into force. In these cases, it is necessary to amend to Agreement and adapt it to the changing circumstances.
Amendments are possible, but some of them should be discussed beforehand with ECHO, both in the field and at HQ level.
Amendments must be always duly justified, clear and unequivocal and do not have the purpose or effect of making changes to the Agreement, which would call into question the award of the grant or be contrary to the equal treatment of partners.
The possibilities of amending Agreements are set out the Article 14 of the General Conditions. Depending on the subject of the amendment, the form of the amendment and the procedure for its adoption may vary.
Two options are available:
GENERAL CONDITIONS, ARTICLE 14
