The Commission has launched a review of the framework of State aid rules for agriculture, forestry and rural areas in view of adopting a new set of rules for the period 2021 to 2027. In that context, the rules have been subject to an evaluation study, carried out by an external contractor. The study report is published here.
As a next step, the Commission has launched an open public consultation seeking stakeholders’ views on the performance of the current framework of State aid rules and on the possible design of the future rules to be established for the period 2021 to 2027. The consultation questionnaire will be available for 12 weeks, from 26 April 2019, in all official languages. The results will feed into both the evaluation of the current rules and the Impact Assessment to be conducted for the future State aid framework.
The last review took place between 2012 and 2014.
