State aid law, an essential component of competition law, is one of the legal frameworks of reference for public support policies for businesses.

Regularly updated by the Legal Affairs Directorate, the "Vade-mecum on State Aid" is intended to facilitate understanding of this subject and to inform decisions on aid to companies. Composed of practical information sheets under three headings - classification as state aid, compatibility of aid and procedural rules - it incorporates the latest changes made by the Commission as part of its reform launched in 2012 to modernise the legal framework for state aid. The eighth edition of the State Aid Vademecum has just been published. For the second year, the book is offered in a completely free and exclusively dematerialised form with reading and search functionalities.

It is available in HTML, e-PUB and PDF formats. It can be consulted on computer, tablet and mobile phone.
