Parliamentary question - E-001377/2022(ASW)Parliamentary question
E-001377/2022(ASW)

Answer given by Executive Vice-President Vestager on behalf of the European Commission

The Commission decision C(2022) 171 final of 11 January 2022 in case SA.101010 has notably extended the application of the state aid schemes referred in the first paragraph of the question, which the Commission had previously approved[1], to contracts for which aid is granted by 30 June 2022.

Those schemes were approved on the basis of Article 107(3)(b) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, in light of Section 3.1 of the Temporary Framework for state aid measures to support the economy in the current COVID-19 outbreak[2]. That section expires on 30 June 2022; therefore, no granting of aid after this date will be possible under this legal basis.

After 30 June 2022, several possibilities remain available for Member States to avoid a disruptive end of support to beneficiaries in need because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, investment support towards a sustainable recovery will be possible until 31 December 2022, and solvency support until 31 December 2023.
