Strengthening the competition regime

New measures that will strengthen and streamline the UK’s new competition regime have been outlined by the Competition Minister Jo Swinson.

The proposals, published in a consultation, Competition Regime: Draft Secondary Legislation – Part 2, include:

  • the ability for the Competition Appeal Tribunal, as well as the High Court and Court of Session, to grant a warrant to enter premises. This will help streamline civil and criminal procedures for dealing with antitrust and cartel cases
  • arrangements for the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to coordinate the use of competition powers between economic regulators
  • the ability to publish relevant information about agreements between businesses to bring them outside the criminal cartel offence

The CMA Transition team has also published a second set of guidance documents for consultation. Comments are sought by 11th November 2013.
