This Commission department is responsible for EU policy on competition and for enforcing EU competition rules, in cooperation with national competition authorities.


News from this department


The European Commission, together with the national competition authorities, directly enforces EU competition rules, Articles 101-106 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU (TFEU), to make EU markets work better, by ensuring that all companies compete equally and fairly on their merits. This benefits consumers, businesses and the European economy as a whole.

Within the Commission, the Directorate-General (DG) for Competition is primarily responsible for these direct enforcement powers. For more information visit the Competition Policy website…
