The European, Middle Eastern and African Antitrust Review 2017

Sweden: Competition Authority

21 July 2016

The Swedish Competition Authority’s (SCA) capacity to tackle a broad range of issues of vital importance for Swedish consumers can be seen in the diverse range of antitrust cases that are currently before the courts. The authority has also proven itself effective in meeting the demands of an increased number of complex merger reviews. Meanwhile, our advocacy efforts have brought into focus the importance of competition within prominent policy discussions around issues such as construction, housing and finance. With the transfer of national procurement support functions to a new authority in September 2015, the SCA is well placed to continue its dedicated enforcement of the competition and procurement rules, as well as its advocacy work.
