European Competition Network - ECN

The AdC is a member of the European Competition Network, which gathers competition agencies from the 27 EU Member States and the European Commission.

The ECN  initiated its activities in 2004, with the entry into force of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1/2003, and aims at ensuring effective and coherent enforcement of competition law across the European Union.

The ECN is a forum for discussion of competition policy, framing cooperation among its members that *promotes consistent enforcement of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU, fostering a competition culture in the European Union.

Beyond cooperation within the framework of the ECN, cooperation on the European level also focuses on merger control and State Aid.
