On 30 June, DG COMP launched a comprehensive evaluation of Regulations 1/2003 and 773/2004 (‘the evaluation’). 

On 18 May, DG COMP tendered for a support study for the evaluation. 

On 24 May, DG COMP began consulting on a future update of the 2004 Notice on informal guidance relating to novel antitrust questions. 

First announced by EVP Vestager on 31 March, the evaluation will seek views on upgrading the Commission’s procedural antitrust framework, including on: 

·        Improving the efficiency and speed of antitrust proceedings;

·        Faster interim measures in digital markets;

·        Inspections (‘dawn raids’) incl. at domestic premises; and

·        Requests for information. 

Massimiliano Kadar has very kindly agreed to present and answer your questions in the first Europe-wide 'Chatham House rule' technical discussion on both projects, an early opportunity to assess how the aim of ensuring the continued effective and uniform application of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU in the digital economy may affect future business operations in the EU.
