The OECD has produced papers on Enhanced Enforcement Co-operation.
International co-operation is a core part of competition-related work at the OECD and the shaping of new co-operation models is key to the benefit of enforcers and business.
In line with the OECD project on international co-operation in competition enforcement, competition delegates participated at a Hearing on Enhanced Enforcement Co-operation on 17 June 2014 so as to study possible new and different forms of co-operation among agencies. Four speakers were invited to share their insights on possible new forms of co-operation and live up the discussion.
