The entry into force of ordinance n° 2021-649 of 26 May 2021 relating to the transposition of Directive (EU) 2019/1 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 aimed at providing national competition authorities members of the means to more effectively implement the competition rules and to guarantee the proper functioning of the internal market, introduced several changes in the legislative framework which profoundly affect the principles for determining the fines of the Autorité de la concurrence.

Drawing on the consequences of these changes and the desire of the European and French legislators to further harmonise the criteria and methodology for determining sanctions at European level, the Autorité de la concurrence has amended its Procedural notice relating to the method for determining financial sanctions.

The Autorité is submitting this draft for public consultation to gather the opinions of all the stakeholders concerned.
