O.P. "Education" implementation should be in accordance with the valid legal framework for Structural Fund interventions in the context of the 3rd CSF. The latter even though it does not involve only O.P. "Education", defines the European Union’s policy areas such as equality of opportunities between the sexes and the environmental protection. It also formulates good management and transparency regulations such as those for competitiveness and public contracts for the procurement of goods, the construction of infrastructure and the provision of services.

It is therefore noted that:

The Final beneficiary must be aware of and apply the valid legal framework and the reference of the aforementioned provisions should not be considered as limiting. In any case the community legal framework predominate over the national one for cases where national legislation has not been harmonized with the community legislation.
