  • A new Regulation has been adopted by the EU Council of Ministers that will significantly streamline and strengthen the way in which EU competition rules are administered and enforced. The objectives behind the change in regime are to ensure that the lynchpins of EU competition rules┬┐Article 81 and Article 82 of the EC Treaty┬┐are applied effectively and uniformly throughout the EU, and to simplify enforcement procedures.
