Competition Regulatory Agency Review and Evaluation Project
USC Gould School of Law

The Competition Regulatory Agency Review and Evaluation Project, run by the Center for Transnational Law and Business, is designed to promote a global uniform set of best practices for the procedural aspects of antitrust investigations across national competition regulatory agencies.

The first phase of the project involves developing a process to review and evaluate the adherence of a jurisdiction's regulatory framework to generally accepted principles for due process, transparency and comity for a national agency's regulatory action based on a set of objective criteria; and the national agency's effectiveness in adhering to these generally accepted principles. The current comparative report reviews and evaluates ten jurisdictions:

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • European Union
  • India
  • Korea
  • Taiwan
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

The second phase of this project will involve conducting an in-country survey of experts, practitioners, and stakeholders utilizing the same objective criteria to determine how effective a jurisdiction’s regulatory framework and its national agency’s adherence are to generally-accepted principles for due process, transparency, and comity from the perspective of those “on the ground” that are impacted by national agency regulatory actions.

The results of the Phase II findings will be published in a report in 2022.
