Reform on State aid
With the intention to simplify administration burdens and focus on cases wih the biggest impact on the internal market, the European Commission launched a reform on state aid on 8 May 2012.
In the course of this reform, the Commission proposed to include the category of culture in the Enabling regulation, so that aids for culture would not be subject to notification requirements. Subsequently, the category of culture was included in the general block exemption regulation (GBER II) to draft block exemptions for the sector.
In July 2013, Pearle issued a statement which expresses the interest of the performing arts sector in the reform. In September 2013, Pearle* participated in the public consultation on the planned exemption for culture.
