To mark new provisions coming into force that expose professional bodies to heavier and more dissuasive sanctions, and as part of an approach aimed at promoting compliance, the Autorité has dedicated a study to the application of competition law to these stakeholders.

The Autorité has decided to support this change by dedicating a study to professional bodies. Drawing on decision-making practice and case law, the aim is to analyse all behaviours that may be opposed to competition law and to present alongside them the pro-competitive actions that can be taken by professional bodies.
