Abstract

This paper concerns remedies in the European Commission's antitrust infringement decisions under Article 7 of Regulation no. 1/2003, as distinct from commitments under Article 9 of the same regulation, and remedies under the Merger Regulation. This paper tries to answer four questions: What are remedies for? When can the Commission impose them? What kind of remedies? And what is the framework for enforcing remedies?

Keywords: Competition, antitrust, remedies, remedy, Article 7, commitments, EU law, EC law, competition law, antitrust law
