General Block Exemption

General Block Exemption General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER) State funding that meets the criteria established in Article 107(1) TFEU constitutes State aid. As a general rule, State aid must be notified to and cleared by the Commission before it is granted. The General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER) exempts Member States from this notification obligation, as long as all the General Block Exemption Regulation criteria are fulfilled. The Regulation simplifies the procedure for aid-granting authorities at national, regional and local level. It allows them to provide measures ranging from job creation and boosting competitiveness to measures that create a favourable environment for the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The new General Block Exemption Regulation significantly extends the possibilities for Member States to grant “good aid” to companies without prior European Commission scrutiny, simplifies the award of State aid and reduces the duration of processes for aid beneficiaries. It also introduces ex-post requirements for Member States such as the requirement to evaluate large aid schemes and to ensure greater transparency on aid awards. The new General Block Exemption Regulation is a cornerstone of the State Aid Modernisation (SAM) agenda (see IP/12/458), which is a broad reform of State aid rules aimed at facilitating sustainable, smart and inclusive growth, focusing on cases with the biggest impact […]

European Food Safety Authority

European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) provides independent scientific advice on all matters with a direct or indirect impact on food safety — including animal health and welfare and plant protection. EFSA is also consulted on nutrition in relation to Community legislation. The Authority communicates to the public in an open and transparent way on all matters within its remit. EFSA’s risk assessments provide risk managers (EU institutions with political accountability, i.e. the European Commission, European Parliament and Council) with a sound scientific basis for defining policy-driven legislative or regulatory measures required to ensure a high level of consumer protection with regards to food safety. Collection and analysis of scientific data, identification of emerging risks and scientific support to the Commission, particularly in case of a food crisis, are also part of EFSA’s mandate, as laid down in the founding Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 of 28 January 2002. EFSA is composed of four bodies: The Management Board is responsible for ensuring that the Authority functions effectively and efficiently. The Board is responsible for establishing the Authority’s draft budget and work programmes, monitoring their implementation, and agreeing to internal rules and regulations. It also appoints EFSA’s […]
