European Competition System

Council Regulation (EC) No. 1/2003 implemented the modernisation process on the enforcement of European antitrust laws foreseen in Articles 101 and 102 TFEU.


Following this descentralisation, national competition authorities and the European Commission have parallel competences in enforcing these rules in close cooperation, within the framework of the European Competition Network.

Beyond the cooperation within the ECN, the AdC is a member of the European Competition Authorities Association – ECA.

The AdC also cooperates bilaterally with European competition agencies.
