Jean-Louis GALLET and Frédéric MARTY join the Board of the Autorité de la concurrence as qualified professionals working in regulated professions.

They will contribute to the Autorité's specific missions on freedom of establishment for notaries, bailiffs and judicial auctioneers.

Duties of these new members  

Pursuant to the law, when the Autorité deliberates on issues regarding the establishment of notaries, bailiffs and judicial auctioneers, “its Board shall include two qualified professionals appointed by decree for a non-renewable three-year term” (last line of Article L. 462-4-1 of the French Commercial Code).  

The term of the first members of the Board appointed in this capacity by the presidential decree of 1 June 2016, Jean-François BOHNERT and Patricia PHÉNÉ, came to an end on 31 May 2019. The Autorité warmly thanks them for their contribution to this specific mission, their commitment and their involvement in issuing opinions and proposals for maps as provided for under French Law of 6 August 2015 (Macron law).

The Board's next deliberations in accordance with Article L. 462-4-1 of the French Commercial Code will take place between now and the end of 2019. They will focus on the freedom of establishment for bailiffs and judicial auctioneers and will bring to a close the map revision process which the Autorité began in the spring (see press release of 19 April 2019). The maps currently applicable for these two professions expire on 29 December 2019.
