State Aid

What is State aid? State aid is an economic advantage that can take many forms, granted by public authorities through state resources on a selective basis, to undertakings or other economic operators. Under certain circumstances, this could potentially distort competition in the markets, against public interest.

The European Commission, through the Directorate-General for Competition (DGCOMP), is in charge of analysing State aid and deciding on its compatibility with the European Single Market. Spain is obliged to notify the European Commission on any State aid granted, unless the scheme is subject to an exemption.

However, the CNMC can provide guidance and assessment to public bodies regarding State aid, in order to preserve the correct functioning of the markets.
