state aid and cultural services
with the intention to simplify administration burdens and focus on cases wih the biggest impact on the internal market, the EC launched a reform on state aid on 8 May 2012.
Previously not mentioned in the Enabling Regulation, the Commission proposed to include the category of culture, so that aid for culture would not be subject to notification requirements. Following from this, the EC can then propose to include culture in the general block exemption regulation.
Pearle issued a statement which expresses the interest of the sector in these developments.
