Abstract:     
This paper deals with the role of the Hearing Officer in competition proceedings conducted by the European Commission for the enforcement of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU (antitrust proceedings) and under the EU Merger Regulation (merger proceedings). After a brief discussion of the status of the Hearing Officer, the paper examines the various powers and tasks of the Hearing Officer (other than the organisation and conduct of the oral hearing, which is discussed in a parallel paper 'The Oral Hearing in Competition Proceedings before the European Commission', also forthcoming in World Competition, Vol. 35, No. 3, September 2012 and accessible at http://ssrn.com/author=456087).
