Actualité des enquêtes de concurrence dans l'Union européenne et en France – October 2016-May 2017

1 September 2017
Concurrences N°3-2017

This article provides an update on the rules applying to antitrust investigations carried out by DGCOMP and the French Competition Authorities. The new rules, case law and agency initiatives in that field over the past eight months are covered. At the EU level, the Commission notably published its ECN+ proposal for a directive to empower the national competition authorities to be more effective enforcers.

At the French level, a number of decisions of interest have been delivered, including the decision of the ECHR in the Janssen Cilag case concerning IT seizures, the aftermath of the Brenntag case on the absence of judicial review concerning investigation powers exercised without a warrant, and the Novartis and Carrefour judgments, that are of particular interest in relation to the procedure of temporarily closed seals.
