Abstract

The French Competition Authority has been given a new power by the legislator: it can order structural injunctions when the price conditions charged by a dominant undertaking are unusually high on the French overseas territories. Clearly, this legal instrument is sui generis in France. It is so too at the European Union level and in the UK where a comparable instrument already exists. This Trends invites a reflexion on this exceptional instrument.

Keywords: Structural remedies, antitrust, competition law, competition authorities
