Guidance on the functions of the CMA under the Withdrawal Agreement

Subject: Competition law

Source: Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)

The CMA has published guidance designed to explain how EU Exit affects the CMA’s powers and processes for competition law enforcement (‘antitrust’, including cartels), merger control and consumer protection law enforcement during the transition period, towards the end of that period, and after it ends. The guidance also explains the treatment of ‘live’ cases, which are those cases that are being reviewed by the European Commission or the CMA during and at the end of the transition period.

The guidance is a ‘live’ document which may be subject to change, particularly in the light of further political and legal developments.
