Greece’s competition law and policy underwent a peer review in 2018. This report describes and assesses the development of its competition regime with a focus on current policy and enforcement; and the evolution of competition policy over the last few years.

The report notes that significant changes in the last ten years have equipped the Greek competition authority with powers and enforcement tools which are well in line with international practices. However, there is still space for improvement, and the report delves deeper into different domains of Greece’s competition law and enforcement to focus on areas where progress can be made.

The final chapter of this report contains a range of policy options, identifying areas in which steps to further strengthen the performance of the competition regime should be considered.

“Peer reviews” are a core element of the OECD work. The mechanisms of peer reviews vary, but it is founded upon the willingness of a country to submit its laws and policies to substantive questioning by other peers.

The process provides valuable insights into the country under study, getting to the heart of ways in which each country deals with competition and regulatory issues, from the soundness of its competition laws to the structure and effectiveness of its competition institutions.

Moreover, these reviews incorporate recommendations for changes in government policy.
