Abstract: By the beginning of 2007 Member States had to set up a system of advising farmers on land and farm management which should cover at least cross compliance requirements (the so-called Farm Advisory System). The report provides an overview on how Member States have set up the Farm Advisory System in the first year of its compulsory implementation. It describes and analyses the information acquired throughout a JRC questionnaire based survey in all Member States. The main topics presented are: the organisation of the system, the bodies that have been accredited to deliver advice, the funding support to farmers for the use of FAS, the way the advice is delivered, the priorities established for farmers and the number of holdings that may be concerned in the service. Finally the main concerns arisen in this first year of FAS implementation are discussed.
