Competition

Country reviews of competition policy frameworks

 

The OECD has conducted in-depth country reviews of national competition laws and policies since 1998. These reviews assess how each country deals with competition and regulatory issues, from the soundness of its competition law to the structure and effectiveness of its competition institutions.

Detailed background reports are peer reviewed before publication by the Competition Committee, the OECD's Global Forum on Competition, or the OECD/IDB Latin American Competition Forum. The reports, which typically incorporate recommendations for changes in government policy, quickly become part of national public debate, as they are closely analysed by government, the media and other influential commentators.
