Competition

The ICC Commission on Competition ensures that modern business needs and markets are taken into account in the formulation and implementation of competition laws and policies.

The commission contributes business expertise and experience to the work of the ICN in areas of competition policy implementation, unilateral conduct, cartels and mergers. In addition, it contributes the business perspective to international discussions on due process principles in competition law;

The commission provides input to proposals on EU competition law reform in areas such as vertical restraints, horizontal agreements and enforcement by private parties and also gives international business views on competition policy developments in different regions.

The Commission meets three times each year in plenary, but carries out work constantly throughout the year in issue-specific task forces.

- February; in conjunction with the BIAC/OECD meetings in Paris

- June; at the Directorate for Competition in Brussels

- September; in conjunction with the Fordham Conference in New York

Every year ICC organizes a roundtable on competition in conjunction with the ICN annual conference.

The commission gathers over 300 experts on competition law, including legal advisors from industrial and commercial enterprises and lawyers in private practice, from 40 countries.
