Spain: National Competition Commission

Since its inception, the National Competition Commission (CNC) has shown its determination to combat anti-competitive practices in Spain, which has resulted in an increase in the number of penalty resolutions. Last year, we imposed fines of over €372 million, representing a 48 per cent increase on the previous year. At the same time, our competition advocacy work has been significantly strengthened. Both enforcement and advocacy are complementary and necessary elements of our duty to supervise competition and promote its introduction into the markets.
