Event Details

Regulation of digital markets in Europe is imminent given approval of the Digital Markets Act (DMA) by the European Council and Parliament with just six-month deadline for entry into force in all EU Member States. How the Regulation is implemented is key as it will have far-reaching consequences not only for those companies that will be designated 'gatekeepers', but also for national com-petition authorities, consumers and most businesses across Europe.

The Competition Law Forum and Oxera  will co-host a roundtable discussion with the European Commission and representatives from national competition authorities in Brussels in the afternoon of the 8th June to chart some of the known unknowns that are now before us.

The afternoon event will consist of two panels to lead the round table discussion with all participants on the day:

Panel 1 will consider the interplay between the DMA, Article 102 TFEU and current national regulation.

Panel 2 will dive into effective compliance measures in light of the principles underlying the DMA.

This event will be  held under the Chatham House Rule. 

Event convened by Dr Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, Senior Research Fellow in Competition Law and Co-Director, Competition Law Forum at BIICL
