EC wants to phase out maritime transport antitrust guidelines

 |  May 5, 2012

The European Commission is inviting comment from stakeholders on the EU maritime transport antitrust guidelines. The guidelines were adopted in July 2008, and are set to expire in September 2013. The Commission’s preliminary view is that the guidelines are no longer needed, as the transition from a sector-specific competition regime to a general one has been completed. Moreover, the maritime transport guidelines currently overlap with general antitrust guidelines.

Comments may be accepted until July 27, 2012.
