Depiction of Seminar on the Foreign Subsidies Regulation

Seminar on the Foreign Subsidies Regulation

In the autumn of 2022, the EU adopted the Foreign Subsidies Regulation (‘FSR’). The FSR will give the European Commission new powers to ‘effectively tackle foreign subsidies that cause distortions and undermine the level playing field in the internal market’. This new Regulation, which the Commission believes will close a gap in its current toolbox, will come into force across the EU from mid-2023.

On Thursday 2 February 2023 in Brussels, we co-hosted a seminar with Herbert Smith Freehills on the FSR, watch the recording below.
