14 July 2015

In 2014, the bulk of DG Competition’s work continued to be enforcement and the fight against cartels. With 10 fining decisions, 2014 was a particularly positive year for enforcement, and the Commission imposed a total of €1.7 billion in fines. Eight out of 10 cases were adopted under the settlement procedure, bringing the total number of settlement decisions made by the Commission to 17 since the introduction of settlements in 2008.
