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.
Following a consultation in March 2011, the government has announced its decision on proposals to reform the UK competition regime. The government has decided to establish a new single Competition and Markets Authority to replace the OFT and Competition Commission. The government has also decided on various, largely procedural changes to strengthen the mergers, markets and antitrust enforcement regimes. For further information see Government decisions on establishment of Competition and Markets Authority and reform of UK competition regime.
