The past year has been tumultuous when it comes to competition law. The pandemic has led competition authorities to swiftly allow cooperation among competitors. And more surprisingly, they have been quite transparent about it. At the same time, the Commission has presented a number of proposals that significantly overhaul existing competition rules, including a new competition tool and a proposal for ex ante regulation. Big tech firms remain central in the debate about market power and access to data, evidenced by a multitude of enforcement actions across Europe and a Commission inquiry into Internet of Things products. In the meantime, the Green Deal is finding its way to competition law, with the Dutch competition regulator ACM leading the way with new guidelines on how to assess sustainability agreements between competitors.
