11 September 2016

The Competition Commission of Switzerland (Comco), located in Berne, is committed to enforcing the provisions of the Federal Act on Cartels and Other Restraints of Competition (Swiss Cartels Act), which focuses on agreements between undertakings affecting competition, abuses of dominant positions and merger control, as well as on state aids under the bilateral Air Transport Agreement between Switzerland and the EU. Generally, the Swiss Cartels Act follows the respective EU provisions, taking into account the legal and economic conditions prevailing in Switzerland.
