    On 19 March 2020, the Commission adopted a Temporary Framework for State aid measures to support the economy in the current COVID-19 outbreak (the “Covid-19 Temporary Framework”). This Temporary Framework complements the Communication on a Coordinated economic response to the COVID-19 outbreak adopted on 13 March 2020. The Covid-19 Temporary Framework outlines the conditions that the Commission will apply when analysing aid granted by Member States under Article 107(3)(b) Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (“TFEU”). As a general rule, Member States must notify the planned State aid to the Commission and demonstrate that it is necessary, appropriate and proportionate to remedy a serious disturbance in the economy of the Member State concerned, and that it complies with all the conditions set out in the Covid-19 Temporary Framework.
