EU raises awareness of the new State aid regulation rules in force next year

On 19 October 2016, the EU-funded Project will present and commence distribution of 3,000 books on State aid regulation among actual and potential State Aid Providers, Parliamentarians and other stakeholders to enhance awareness of the scope and significance of the new regulatory system to be applied in Ukraine from August next year.

State aid regulation will commence fully in Ukraine from August 2017 in line with the Law of Ukraine on State Aid to Undertakings of July 2014. The Law is intended to fully apply the EU State aid rules in Ukraine in accordance with the specific commitments contained in the Association Agreement. Therefore, information is vital at this stage to ensure requirements of the new system are well understood by a very wide range of interested public authorities. The three publications to be presented cover all aspects of State aid regulation compliant with EU standards. The books are:

  1. The Handbook:State Aid Law and Policy – Law Approximation to EU Standardsin Ukraine”;
  2. The Casebook: “European Union Case Law on State Aid regulation”; and
  3. The Glossary of Terms for State Aid Regulation.
