Notification forms

Following the adoption on 25 June 2014 of the new European Union Guidelines for State aid in the agriculture and forestry sector and in rural areas 2014 to 2020, the Commission services are adapting the forms used by the Member States for the notification of the agricultural State aids.

New notification forms will be formally established through a regulation to be adopted during this year.
