El presente texto entrega una breve explicación de la Doctrina de las Facilidades Esenciales, expone la discusión más relevante referida a ella, hace un breve resumen de la jurisprudencia norteamericana y europea, proposición un test de explicación e intenta explicar el lugar que ocupa ante el Tribunal de Defensa de la Libre Competencia de Chile.

Surrounded by criticism, the essential facilities doctrine states that sometimes it may be possible to require a monopolist to provide access to a facility that the monopolist controls and that is deemed necessary for effective competition. This paper provides a brief explanation of most relevant discussions about the doctrine; summarize the European and U.S. case law (where the Supreme Court has never expressly recognized the doctrine); offers a test for its application; and try to explain its position before the Antitrust Chilean Court.
