Spajanja i preuzimanja poduzetnika koja su od važnosti za cijeli EU kontrolira Europska komisija, a u određenim slučajevima mogu biti zabranjena. Zabranjene su državne potpore u korist određenih poduzetnika ili proizvoda, koje za posljedicu imaju narušavanje tržišnog natjecanja, ali u određenim slučajevima mogu biti dopuštene. Pravila tržišnog natjecanja primjenjuju se i na javna poduzeća, obavljanje javnih usluga i usluga od općeg interesa. Međutim, ako bi ostvarenje ciljeva tih posebnih usluga bilo ugroženo, mogu se dozvoliti odstupanja od pravila.

EU and US competition policies: Similar objectives, different approaches

27-03-2014

Both the EU and the US have well-developed competition policies that aim to prevent and penalise anticompetitive behaviour. Although the EU and US systems share similar aims, there are a number of significant differences. The EU has an administrative system for antitrust enforcement, in which companies are penalised with fines. In contrast, US antitrust enforcement is based on criminal law, with financial and custodial penalties against individuals.
