Commission publishes Private Antitrust Damages Directive
08 December 2014
On 5 December 2014 the Commission’s Directive on rules governing actions for damages for infringements of competition law (the Damages Directive) was published. Member States will now have two years plus twenty days (until 2016) to implement it.
Once implemented, the Commission is confident the Directive will deliver victims of anticompetitive behaviour easier access to compensation, without any damage to its essential public enforcement tools.
