The Role of Efficiency Claims in Antitrust Proceedings

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

OECD publishes “The Role of Efficiency Claims in Antitrust Proceedings
 
Even if efficiencies and efficiency claims have been vigorously discussed for decades, they have rarely turned out to be decisive in competition proceedings. Still, their role in competition law has recently gained greater prominence, as witnessed by a number of recent merger decisions in different jurisdictions and the fact that efficiency claims are also more often put forward in abuse of dominance or monopolisation cases.
 
The OECD today published The Role of Efficiency Claims in Antitrust Proceedings, a compilation of the materials presented and discussed at an OECD Competition Committee roundtable held in October 2012. This publication includes an executive summary and a summary of discussion, over 19 national contributions and a background note by the OECD Secretariat.
 
These proceedings together with the full set of OECD roundtable proceedings on Competition Policy can be found at www.oecd.org/competition/roundtables. More OECD work on Competition can be found at our website at www.oecd.org/daf/competition/.
