Key Points: 
  • Calls on the Council to notify Parliament if it intends to depart from the text approved by Parliament;
    3.
  • Asks the Council to consult Parliament again if it intends to substantially amend the text approved by Parliament;
    4.
  • Instructs its President to forward its position to the Council and the Commission.
  • The proposal for Council Regulation (EU) No 327/2022[1] enables the European Commission to exempt from prior notification under EU State aid rules certain types of aid for rail, inland waterway and multimodal transport, with the objective of promoting green transport.
  • Since State aid for rail, inland waterway and multimodal transport falls under Article 93 TFEU, which constitutes a lex specialis relative to Article 107(2) and (3) TFEU, a specific enabling Council regulation for rail, inland waterway and multimodal transport seems justified (Transport Enabling Regulation).
  • Therefore, the proposed Transport Enabling Regulation allows the Commission to adopt block exemption regulations for aid to rail and inland waterway transport and to multimodal transport with the objective of promoting green transport.
  • It was adopted by the European Commission on 6 July 2022, in the context of the revision of the State aid Railway Guidelines.
