Antitrust enforcement in the ECN+regime: what will change?

Date: Thursday, 13 September 2018 19:00 - 20:30

Venue: Renaissance EU Hotel  |  City: Brussel

On 30 May, the European Parliament and Council of Ministers reached a provisional political agreement on the proposal for a Directive to make Member States’ competition authorities even more effective enforcers of the EU antitrust rules (‘the Directive’).

Once the Directive has been implemented, all European NCAs will have at their disposal a common minimum enforcement toolbox, including:

Effective evidence-gathering tools, including from digital sources;
Coordinated and effective leniency programmes;
Guarantees of independent action and adequate resources;
Powers to impose proportionate and deterrent sanctions (boosted by rules on parental liability and succession);
Effective powers to take decisions, including to impose interim measures; and
EU Charter-compliant procedural safeguards.
In addition to these regulatory changes, over time the Directive should prompt a change in the culture and ethos of antitrust enforcement in Europe.

Anna Vernet, Ailsa Sinclair, Elisavet Arsenidou and Jurga Stanciute have kindly agreed to participate in the first Europe-wide 'Chatham House' rule discussion following agreement on the Directive, completing the antitrust enforcement toolbox that all NCAs will be able to deploy in the near future.
