The European Commission, DG IA, has issued a French version of the publication "Guidelines for PHARE programme implementation in candidate countries, 1998-1999". This was originally published in English on 27 March 1998, following the re-orientation of the PHARE programme towards the activities of pre-adhesion of the countries of central and eastern Europe (CEECs) to the European Union.

Financial assistance from the European Communities for the CEECs is provided through the PHARE programme under Council Regulation 3906/89.

These General Guidelines, as provided by article 8 of the Council Regulation, set out the broad parameters within which the PHARE programme will operate in 1998-99 in the CEECs. The Commission may propose to extend the duration of these guidelines beyond 2000.

As the role of PHARE in the accession process has grown, it has become clear that a conceptual distinction needs to be drawn between activities in the candidate countries and those in Albania and the Former Yugoslavia (except Slovenia), which have not applied to join the Union, and whose programmes do not, therefore, focus on accession. These General Guidelines, which are part of the pre-accession process, apply only to PHARE activities in the ten candidate countries. General Guidelines for PHARE in the non-associated countries will be issued in a separate document, and, in the meantime, the previous Guidelines of 1994-7 will be prolonged and continue to apply.
