Amendment of the State aid Reporting obligations

Policy field

Competition policy – state aid

Target group

Member states, public authorities, citizens, companies and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from the national and regional authorities dealing with the annual reporting to the Commission on State aid granted.

Period of consultation

From 20.05.2011 to 20.07.2011

Objective of the consultation

The purpose of this consultation is to invite Member States and stakeholders to express their views on the Commission’s proposal to amend the reporting obligations imposed on Member States in the State aid field.

The objective of this project is to:

  • simplify administrative burden by removing the additional reporting obligations from the specific State aid guidelines/frameworks. Such a removal translates the Commission's efforts to simplify its guidelines and to lighten the obligations imposed on Member States in line with the Better Regulation Policy.
  • improve data collection in the context of the annual reporting exercise. Changes in the Implementing Regulation are foreseen to prepare the transition to State Aid Reporting Interactive tool; to clarify ambiguous provisions and to request Member States to provide additional useful information on the type of aid beneficiaries (SME or large enterprises) across all objectives and on sector classification up to four-digit level for all schemes.
