Article 6
Terms, conditions and restrictions concerning the provision of aids

The approved aided cost, may be restructured fol-lowing a request of the investor, and provided that 50% of the investment and/or equipment leasing pro-gram has been implemented. In order to determine the restructuring amount of the cost of the investment or program, account shall be taken of any increases and variations that have arisen in the individual cost elements of the investment or program, during their implementation. Any cost restructuring in excess of 15% of the approved cost of the investment, or 25% of the approved cost in case of business plans, may not be approved.
In order for this paragraph to be applicable, a docu-mented recommendation of the competent department to the Advisory Committee shall be required.
7. Extension of time limit for the completion of an in-vestment and/or equipment leasing program eligible for a grant and interest subsidy, as well as leasing subsidy.
The time limit for the completion of an investment and/or equipment leasing program provided for in the decision on eligibility, may be extended for a maxi-mum of two (2) years, on condition that the relevant request shall be submitted exclusively within six (6) months from the expiry of the completion time limit ini-tially set in the decision on eligibility, and provided that upon submission of the relevant request, at least 50% of the approved project shall have been com-pleted.
By way of exception, in case of interruption or delay of the works due to force majeure, sufficiently proven, the investment completion time limit may be extended for an additional time period, equal to that of the inter-ruption or delay. In case the force majeure arises prior to the completion time limit initially set in the decision on eligibility, the relevant request must be submitted prior to such completion time limit, without the condi-tion for the completion of 50% of the approved project.
8. Commencement of investments and/or equipment leasing programs and business plans, eligible for the grant and interest subsidy, as well as leasing subsidy.
(a) The commencement of investments and/or equipment leasing programs and business plans of these presents, may take place after the submission of the application seeking eligibility for the provisions of these presents, as well as all the required support-ing documents to the competent department. Invest-ment projects, equipment leasing contracts and other operations implemented prior to the submission date of the application seeking eligibility, shall not be com-puted in the aided cost nor in the investor's own par-ticipation, irrespective of whether, by that date, they shall have been paid.
By way of exception, in case of organisations, facili-ties of which have suffered losses due to fires, floods or other natural events, submit an application seeking eligibility for investments, equipment leasing pro-grams or business plans, related to the restoration of affected activities, the investment projects, equipment leasing contracts and other operations implemented in the time period from the moment that the fire or natu-ral event that caused the loss occurred until the sub-mission date of the application seeking eligibility, shall be taken into account for the calculation of aids, pro-vided that these were implemented within a maximum period of twelve (12) months prior to the submission of such application.
(b) The commencement of the investment, leasing program or business plan prior to the publication of the decision making them eligible for the provisions of this law, shall be on the sole responsibility of the in-vestor and shall not bind the judgement of the Advi-sory Committee, nor the decision of the Administra-tion, concerning the eligibility of those operations for the provisions of these presents.
(c) Grant-aided investment expenditures, preceding the submission date of the application seeking eligibil-ity, shall not be computed in the grant-aided cost, nor in the investor's own participation.
9. Terms, conditions and restrictions on the invest-ment loan.
(a) In case the use of a loan shall be provided for the investment or business plan proposed to receive an aid, then this loan should:
(i) be medium to long term, of a term no less than four years;
(ii) be in the form of a bank loan, or a bond loan is-sued through a public offering or not, or a loan by other financing organisations, with the exception of the current account form;
