The increasing number of competition enforcement cases with international dimensions makes co-operation between competition enforcers in different jurisdictions imperative for domestic enforcement to be truly effective. Success in discovering and prosecuting anti-competitive practices will require competition authorities to significantly improve their ability to co-operate. International co-operation in competition enforcement cases is a topic that continues to be widely discussed in many fora and is of considerable interest to competition enforcers and the private sector alike. This case study presents how the OECD has contributed to these discussions and has fostered co-operation through its own instruments and reports, as have others.
The case study on competition law enforcement was developed by the OECD Competition Division.
