The European Commission has closed an in-depth investigation opened in 2013 to examine whether changes to French tax rules for maritime companies were in line with EU state aid rules after France offered commitments addressing the Commission's concerns.

The Commission had concerns that also giving favourable fiscal benefits to certain vessels sailing under non-EU flags would run counter the objectives of EU maritime transport policy. France has now committed to ensure that French tonnage tax payers flag at least 25% of their tonnage in the EEA. This addresses the Commission's concerns.
