Ireland: Competition and Consumer Protection Commission

15 July 2015

It was a landmark year in 2014 for competition and consumer policy in Ireland. After 23 years in existence, and six years after the announcement was first made, the Irish Competition Authority merged with the National Consumer Agency (NCA) on 31 October 2014 to form the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (the Commission). The Commission was established under the Competition and Consumer Protection Act 2014, a significant piece of legislation which empowers the Commission to act as an independent body with a broad statutory remit to pursue our stated mission which is ‘to make markets work better for consumers and businesses’.
