Satet Aid in the Form of Public Service Compensation: Waiting for the New EU Framework

The European Commisison published today in the Official Journal a Communication (HERE) extending the date of expiry of the currently applicable 2005 Communication on the Community framework for State aid in the form of public service compensation (OJ C 337, 18.11.2011, p. 2). The framework was supposed to expire on 29 November 2011, i.e., 6 years after the adoption of the 2005 Communication. As the Commission is currently in the process of reviewing the state aid rules for the compensation of services of general economic interest, the 2005 framework will continue to apply until the adoption of the new one.

More information on the review process on the SGEI website of the Commission.
