Belgium: Overview

14 July 2015

This contribution provides an overview of the most important and relevant developments occurred in Belgium over the past 12 months, illustrated with some recent cases. On 3 April 2013, a new act inserting competition law provisions into the Belgian Code of Economic Law (BCE) and abrogating most of the provisions of the Belgian Act on the Protection of Economic Competition (APEC) was adopted. The new act entered into force before on 6 September 2013. Consequently, this overview covers the first full 12-month period under the new act (ie, June 2014 until 31 May 2015).
