For the purpose of price verification, competent de-partments and advisory committees may check data on the value of machinery and equipment during the evaluation procedure, as well as at subsequent stages, or even after the completion of the equipment leasing program or business plan. Competent depart-ments or advisory committees may ask the investor, the supplier or third parties to provide them with addi-tional data and information documenting the value, for the purpose of the verification. To verify the cost of other investment fixed assets, competent departments and advisory committees may use all kinds of evi-dence, such as costing norms for building and other construction works from the Technical Chamber of Greece, taking account of the nature and the type of the particular building construction. Should it be es-tablished in any way, that the investment cost has been overcharged by the investor, the application seeking eligibility shall be rejected or the approval re-voked and any grant paid shall be returned.
