Abstract

This paper deals with the powers of the European Commission and the competition authorities of the EU Member States to enforce Articles 101 and 102 TFEU, and with the procedural rights and guarantees that circumscribe or limit these powers. It focuses in particular on the interplay between the different sources of law governing these matters: EU and national legislation, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, the European Convention on Human Rights, and the case-law of the EU Courts and the European Court of Human Rights.

Keywords: European Commission, National Competition Authorities, Articles 101 and 102 TFEU, Procedural rights ad guarantees, Charter of fundamental rights, European Convention of Human Rights
