UK: Brexit priority for CMA in annual plan

 |  February 14, 2019
The CMA is publishing its annual plan when the timing and nature of the UK’s exit from the EU remain uncertain. The plan makes clear that CMA will be ready to step up to its additional responsibilities, including a new UK state aid function, whether at the end of March or later.
Whilst a ‘no deal’ exit would present challenges in the short term, the period ahead also provides opportunities for the organization to secure better outcomes for UK consumers and to take on a bigger role on the world stage.

Due to the continued uncertainty around EU exit, the CMA is publishing its priorities at a high level. It intends to continue to refine and explain its plans as clarity emerges.

The CMA will also prioritize cases where people may be losing out because they are vulnerable to exploitation, or getting a poor deal due to their personal circumstances.
