Framework for Competition Agency Procedures:  Participant Perspectives

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

Fair and effective procedures are essential to sound competition law enforcement and can increase opportunities for international cooperation. Following the desire expressed by several competition agencies to further cooperate on fundamental principles of fair and effective procedures, the ICN established a Framework on Competition Agency Procedures (the “CAP”). This webinar will mark the first gathering of participants since the CAP was signed in May of 2019.  The webinar will review highlights from the templates submitted by participants and feature several perspectives on how the CAP agreement and completion of templates have provided opportunities for self assessment, regional dialogue on procedures, and more productive engagement with private parties.
