Law 19/2013, of December 9, of transparency, access to public information and good governance established the content of information that, in the field of grants and public aid, should be published.

On the other hand, Law 15/2014, of September 16, of rationalization of the Public Sector and other measures of administrative reform modifies the contents of the National Database of Grants (BDNS) that is contemplated in the Section 20.2 of Law 38/2003, of 17 November, General of Grants and, in application of the principles contained in Law 19/2013, regulates in paragraph 20.8 the content to be published through the National System of Advertising of Grants.

Finally, European legislation sets out the contents that each Member State will have to publicize in the field of state aid. This legislation is mainly set out in Commission Regulation (EU) No 651/2014 of 17 June 2014 declaring certain categories of aid compatible with the internal market pursuant to Articles 107 and 108 of the Treaty. Treaty; Commission Regulation (EU) No 702/2014 of 25 June 2014 declaring certain categories of aid in the agricultural and forestry sectors and in rural areas compatible with the internal market; and in Regulation No Commission Regulation (EC) No 138/2014 of 16 December 2014 declaring certain categories of aid to undertakings engaged in the production, processing and marketing of fishery and aquaculture products compatible with the internal market.

These three sources have motivated the reconfiguration of the National Database of Grants to contemplate the incorporation of new elements of information, a circumstance that has also been used to improve the model and promote computer-based solutions that facilitate their incorporation into the system.

The quarterly deadline for the referral of information during the first half of 2016 is maintained, in order to make it easier for the Organs and Users to join the new system; however, as of July, the information is supply to BDNS monthly, in order to be able to respond to the deadlines imposed by the Community legislation.

The content, form and periodicity of the presentation of the information appeared to be regulated to date in Order EHA/875/2007, of 29 March, determining the content and technical specifications of the information to be provided to the National Database of Subsidies regulated in the Regulation of Law 38/2003, of November 17, General of Grants.
