This immensely useful book is a quick source of reference for practitioners working with EC State aid matters.

Following a highly organized sequence of subject headings, it presents extracts from all relevant judgements and orders of both the European Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance on the EC Treaty rules on State aid (Articles 8789). Each subject heading starts with extracts having a more general meaning, followed by extracts relating to specific points or situations. Under each extract or summary, the judgements and orders are referred to by case number in ascending order. The articles of the EC Treaty are cited according to the method of citation pursuant to the renumbering of the articles of that treaty brought about by the Treaty of Amsterdam. The book covers all the case law of both courts until March 2008.

With this book practitioners will quickly find relevant paragraphs and full citations regarding all issues raised by Articles 8789 EC, including the following and much more:

  • territorial scope of State aids;
  • Article 87(1) EC and WTO agreements;
  • conditions for categorizing a national measure as State aid;
  • free movement of goods;
  • common agricultural policy;
  • powers and discretion of the Commission;
  • undertakings;
  • private vs. public investment;
  • justification of selective measures;
  • aid liable to affect trade and to distort competition;
  • the Altmark conditions for public service aid;
  • restructuring aids;
  • administrative procedure;
  • locus standi of trade associations; and
  • scope, nature, and limits to the Council’s power under Article 88(2) EC.

In many areas, the extracts in this book relate to points of the judgements which are not or only partially treated in official summaries.
