This briefing is intended to give you a head start in dealing with investigations under the Irish Competition Act 2002 as amended.
Irish competition rules are designed to protect consumers from anti-competitive behaviour. Agreements and other multilateral arrangements that restrict competition in all or part of the State are prohibited, subject to the possibility of exemption under certain conditions. Abuses of a dominant position are also banned. Investigations may also be conducted under EU competition rules. These rules will apply only where the activity in question affects trade between EU Member States.
