We would like to perform a post-quality check of shelters built in the framework of an ECHO action. Given the fact that these kinds of activities must be implemented after the end of the action, may ECHO consider the costs related to this check as eligible?

The only activities that are eligible after the end of the implementation period are: the preparation of the Final Report, post-distribution monitoring and final evaluation/audit. Therefore, costs related to post-quality check activities are not eligible if performed after the end of the implementation period. To make sure that these costs are eligible, the partner may consider them as activities of the action, to be performed during the implementation period.
