10 March 2014

The Superintendency for the Control of Market Power (SCMP) is one of the youngest enforcers in this survey, having only opened for business in October 2012.  It has around 140 staff members and field offices away from its Quito headquarters.  Right now, the authority says it has 69 antitrust investigations under way, looking at abuse of market power, cartel conduct and bid rigging.
