In past years, there has been a decentralization of the enforcement of the EU competition law provisions, Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). As a result, the national application of these provisions has become increasingly more common across the European Union. This national application presents various challenges for those concerned about the constant application of EU competition law.
The Consistent Application of EU Competition Law, (PDF) provides an in-depth analysis of the most important limitations of, and the challenges relating to, the applicability of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU at national level. Sectioned into five parts, the ebook starts out by examining how the constant enforcement of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU operates as a general EU competition policy. It then discusses numerous recent landmark cases of the European Court of Justice on Articles 101 and 102 TFEU, before moving to analyse certain additional, unique jurisdictional challenges to the uniform application of the EU competition law provisions. Consequently, it emphasizes on one of the most important instruments that can help to attain the uniform application of EU competition law in cases handled by the national courts: preliminary rulings. Lastly, it provides selective examples of how Articles 101 and 102 TFEU are effectively implemented at national level, thereby offering additional input into how problematic the issue of consistent application of EU competition law is in practice.
