About the Leiden Competition Talks on Regulation 1/2003
Almost 20 years ago, Regulation 1/2003 brought fundamental changes to the way Articles 101 and 102 TFEU are enforced. As part of a broader review exercise of the “fitness” of EU antitrust enforcement, the European Commission launched a public consultation on the performance of this institutional and procedural framework. It acknowledges that in certain areas an update may be needed.
Has Regulation 1/2003 delivered on its promise to make enforcement of the antitrust rules more effective? How has the system of shared enforcement responsibilities between the Commission, national competition authorities, and national courts set out by the Regulation affected the uniform application of these rules? And are the Commission’s investigative, decision-making, and sanctioning powers under the Regulation sufficient in the years to come?
The Leiden Competition Talks on Regulation 1/2003 - a new series of lectures and panel discussions – provides a regular forum for thought-provoking discussion and reflection on the functioning of Regulation 1/2003, both at the EU and national level. It features leading academics, policy-makers, regulators, and practitioners offering various perspectives on key aspects of the system of enforcement set out in the Regulation.
The bimonthly talks, which will run until the 20th anniversary of the entry into force of Regulation 1/2003, are organized by the Europa Institute of Leiden Law School. They are held as online webinars that are open to all, but prior registration is required.
