Summary/Abstract: Block exemption measures include those exempted from the obligation to notify the Commission in advance and can therefore be applied without prior authorization by the Commission. The European Commission endorsed in 2017 new State aid rules which exempt certain public support measures for ports, airports, culture and the outermost regions from ex-ante control by the Commission, including them in the scope of the GBER, way its scope. The aim is to facilitate public investment aimed at creating jobs and growth while preserving competition. By focusing on the quality and efficiency of public support, state aid control can also help Member States to strengthen their budget discipline and improving the quality of public finances, which leads to better use of taxpayers’ money.
