Recent Developments in Competition Policy and Regional Aid:: Adjusting to a 'New Normal'

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

State aid control is completing its move to a new phase of development. In 2014 the Commission largely finished its reform programme, the State aid modernisation (SAM) initiative. This placed new emphasis on transparency, effectiveness, and evaluation, recast the basis for the assessment and compliance of State aid across a range of policy areas and further increased the 'self-policing' element of State aid discipline. The main element of the reform package not (yet) achieved is the adoption of a Communication on the 'notion' of State aid. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview and update of regional aid control issues as Member State introduce measures and adapt to the new regime.
