The link between State Aid Law and the provision of SGEI causes uncertainty among public authorities as they face a conflict of interests: On the one hand, public bodies are obligated to guarantee the supply of public services. On the other hand the providers of SGEI may not be overcompensated and competition may not be distorted. Furthermore, each Member State has the discretion to define which services fall under the SGEI, so the same service can be qualified in different way.
Learn when the compensation for SGEI constitutes State aid and get advice from experts from the European Commission, other Member States and leading law offices.
