Belgium: Competition Authority

30 July 2014

The first 10 months In his contribution to The European Antitrust Review 2014, Stefaan Raes described the structure of the new Belgian Competition Authority (BCA). It started its activities in September 2013, and as such I can only look back on its first nine months. It is too early to see whether the reform delivers a swifter enforcement of the rules of competition the legislator and stakeholders expected, but we can already formulate a few initial comments and observations.
