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 preliminary comparative report reviews and evaluates seven jurisdictions:
- European Union
- United States
The second phase of the project will identify and, where appropriate, provide recommendations for areas of improvement to better adhere to generally accepted principles and best practices for due process, transparency and comity. The project will conduct 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. In this phase the project will also expand the number of jurisdictions to be reviewed and evaluated.
The results of the Phase II findings will be published in a report in 2021. Subsequently, the Center will produce an annual report providing updates to the findings of Phase I and Phase II.
