English term or phrase:BER - Block exemption regulation
The European Commission has published an evaluation report of the first
five years of operation of the block exemption Regulations for state aid. The
report concludes that the experience has been largely successful. Member
States have been able to take more than 1600 state aid measures without
prior notification to the Commission to support investment, and research and
development (R&D) activities of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME)
as well as to boost employment and training. Based on the experience
gained and as envisaged in the State Aid Action Plan (see IP/05/680), the
Commission intends to build on these benefits, simplify and re-group the
existing block exemption Regulations into one general Regulation and to
widen its scope to include in particular certain types of environmental aid. As
of 1 January 2007, a new block exemption Regulation for regional investment
aid (see IP/06/1453) and new rules for aid for the production, processing and
marketing of agricultural products (see IP/06/1697) have also come into force.
