Within the European Competition Network, antitrust cases are to be handled by the competition authority that is the best placed to act. This involves the European Commission and the national competition authorities in individual EU Member States exchanging confidential information and evidence and sometimes a reallocation of cases.
The statement of principle may be clear, but the reality is much more complicated, as recent cases have highlighted.
Can the competition authorities in the EU continue to handle cases where their procedural rules differ, often materially? Isn't it time for more consistent penalty guidelines across the EU? How can companies cope with referrals when leniency and settlement frameworks differ depending on the acting competition authority?
