What are the current legislative frameworks within foreign jurisdictions in the field of competition
What are the current legislative frameworks within foreign jurisdictions in the field of competition law? Where there exists an overarching competition authority (as in the case of the European Unions Competition Commission) and a governmental regulatory body for each specific sector (e.g. telecommunications, insurance, transport, banks etc.) whose remit is it to enforce the regulations? Is the enforcement of laws regulating matters in the field of antitrust and competition the jurisdiction of a General Authority of Competition or each specific sectors Governmental Regulatory Agency? There is a conflict of jurisdiction between the General Authority of Competition and the Telecommunications Authority regarding whose remit it is to enforce competition and antitrust laws. Whilst the General Authority of Competition maintains that the enforcement of such laws is their jurisdiction regardless of the specific sector of the economy, the Telecommunications Authority claims jurisdiction of laws regulating the telecommunication sector including matters of antitrust and competition. Q1: Are there any instances across the various international jurisdictions where such conflict has arisen and, if so, please outline whether and how this conflict was resolved. Who are the specialists in this field within the European Union, the Americas, China, Brazil and India? Q2: Is there any relevant case law in this field and what are the merits of each case? Q3: Please give details of specific cases in which there is harmony between the jurisdictions and remits of a General Authority of Competition and a Governmental Regulatory Agency including an outline of the principles that regulate their relationship.
