This short paper provides an overview of the different evidentiary standards that have been applied in recent case law and case practice, covering both leading EU and selected national cases. Section 2 first describes the established case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Section 3 then goes on to portray the Commission’s more recent effects-based approach and case practice. Section 4 summarizes some notable recent NCA cases and contrasts them with the Commission’s approach. Section 5, finally, concludes and provides an outlook on policy.
