Hungary: Competition Authority

15 July 2015

Major procedural amendments to the Hungarian Competition Act (Act LVII of 1996 on the prohibition of unfair and restrictive practices) entered into force in July 2014 and the medium-term institutional strategy for 2015–2018 entered into force in late December 2014. The implementation of the strategy plan began in January 2015 and relates to the enforcement of the revised Competition Act and to the adjustment of its operation in accordance with the medium-term institutional strategy. The fight against cartels remains a priority for the Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH).
