A detailed explanation of the methodology used to build the OECD PMR indicators
In June 2021, the OECD held a roundtable on the concept of potential competition. This roundtable looked at potential competition and the way that it is analysed. It explored the role of barriers to entry, the timeframe used, and the ways in which agencies assess the likelihood and strength of potential competition.
In June 2021, the OECD held a roundtable on competition compliance programmes, looking at the latest developments in how compliance programmes are considered by agencies when setting fines, resolving cases, drivers for these decisions, advocacy efforts to promote effective compliance programmes in the private sector, the relationship between competition compliance programmes and compliance programmes in other regulatory fields.
In June 2021, Working Party 2 of the OECD held a roundtable on the relationship between regulation and competition enforcement, which explored how competition enforcement interacts with possible regulatory alternatives. This page contains all related materials.
The OECD Council has adopted a number of non-binding Recommendations on competition law and policy. In addition, the Competition Committee has adopted Best Practices. These Recommendations and Best Practices are often catalysts for major change by governments.
Competitive neutrality means that state-owned and private businesses compete on a level playing field. This is essential for the effective use of resources within the economy and thus the achievement of growth and development. While the principle of competitive neutrality is gaining wide support around the world, obtaining it in practice is a much more difficult question.
