About this initiative


Government aid for regions in the EU should not distort competition or affect trade in the single market. The current rules for assessing this are set out in a series of EU guidelines.

These will expire in 2020, when they will be reviewed. To prepare for this, the Commission will be evaluating the current rules, including the method for drawing up regional aid maps and the compatibility criteria for regional investment and operating aid.
