EUROPEAN UNION: Public consultation - Second draft of the new Block Exemption Regulation applicable to the fishery and aquaculture sector

 

Consultation on a second draft of the new Block Exemption Regulation replacing Regulation (EC) No 736/2008 of 22 July 2008 on the application of articles 87 and 88 of the Treaty to State aid to small and medium-sized enterprises active in the production, processing and marketing of fisheries products.

 

Policy fields

 

Fishery and aquaculture

 

Target groups

 

Public authorities, citizens, companies and organisations concerned with State aid are welcome to contribute to this consultation.

 

Period of consultation

 

From 04.08.2014 to 30.09.2014 (8 weeks)

 

Objective of the consultation

 

The purpose of the consultation is to collect the views of citizens and stakeholders on a second draft of the new Block Exemption Regulation applicable to the fishery and aquaculture sector (FIBER). Block exemption regulations aim to simplify aid granting procedures for Member States by authorising without prior notification a range of measures fulfilling horizontal common interest objectives.

 

The previous FIBER expired on 31 December 2013. The general philosophy of the new draft FIBER remains the same, which is to exempt from the notification requirement aid to SMEs for certain measures which would have met the conditions to be eligible under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). The new FIBER will also apply to aid to make good the damage caused by national disasters independently of the size of the beneficiary.

 

The review has to be put in the context of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). The State aid instruments specific to the fishery and aquaculture sector have to be reviewed to reflect the priorities and objectives of the CFP, including the contents of the EMFF. Each State aid instrument should reflect the priorities and objectives of the CFP. It is all the more true for the FIBER, the content of which is determined by and dependent on the EMFF.

 

The review is also part of the State aid Modernisation (SAM) initiative of the European Commission.
