Latest on Efforts to Reform Mexico's Competition Law

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Efforts are underway by Mexico's ComisiĆ³n Federal de Competencia (CFC) to reform Mexican competition law to give it more teeth.  The CFC is pushing for greater sanctions against anticompetitive behavior with penalties based upon 15% of total annual sales in case of collusion and 9% of total annual firm sales in case of non-collusive anticompetitive behavior. The latest news from the Mexican legislative is that these suggested reforms must wait to further analysis, which is seen as a setback.

HT: Professor Ramiro Tovar Landa of ITAM, who testified in favor of including a market affected from the relevant market analysis instead of total sales as criteria to fines before Mexico's Congress.
