Competition regime: Complaints under UK competition law
This Practice note considers the rights of parties affected by a breach of UK competition law to complain to the competition authorities; the rights of third parties to complain about mergers in the UK; and the super-complaints regime.
This note has been amended to reflect the entry into force of the competition provisions of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 (ERRA). On 1 April 2014, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) took over all the competition functions of the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and Competition Commission, which ceased to exist. However, this note continues to refer to the decisions and actions of these former authorities, taken up to 31 March 2014.
