Block Exemption Regulation

Council Regulation No 994/98 of 7 May 1998, amended by Council Regulation No 733/2013 of 22 July 2013, enables the Commission to adopt so-called Block Exemption Regulations for State aid. With these regulations, the Commission can declare specific categories of State aid compatible with the Treaty if they fulfil certain conditions, thus exempting them from the requirement of prior notification and Commission approval.
