European State Aid Law

A Commentary

Edited by: Franz Jurgen Sacker, Frank Montag

The regulation of State aid belongs to the core areas of European Union law. Without the general prohibition of State subsidies to undertakings, competitiveness would be distorted and the benefits of the internal market would be put in jeopardy. This commentary deals systematically and article-by-article with the basic principles, proceedings, and implementation of State aid law as laid down in Articles 107 to 109 TFEU, as well as the general block exemptions regulation (Regulation No. 800/2008) and the Council Regulation (EC) No. 659/1999 laying down detailed rules for the application of Article 93 TEC. Furthermore, the book deals in detail with the rules regulating State aid in specific sectors, such as: telecommunication, postal services, broadcast/television, energy/coal, banking, railroads, road transport, shipping, air traffic/airports, automotive industry, shipbuilding, steel, housing, agriculture, fishery, culture/ tourism/sport, and health.
