Block exemptions — National regional aid

This chapter covers the regional aid exemption contained within the General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER), and the application of the Regional Aid Guidelines to regional aid that falls outside the scope of the GBER. It explains the demarcation of Article 107(3)(a) and Article 107(3)(c) regions under the 2014–2020 Regional Aid Guidelines, before going on to address the scope of and conditions for the three types of regional aid measure exempted by the GBER: regional investment aid, regional operating aid, and regional urban development aid. The compatibility assessment of aid under the Regional Aid Guidelines is then discussed in detail.
