Competition Commission

The Competition Commission (CC) was an independent public body established in 1999 to promote competition in the UK economy. It does this by undertaking investigations into specific markets where competition may be at risk. It also looks at mergers to assess whether competition is likely to be compromised, and can block these mergers, or request modifications to the merger plan. Replaced by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in 2014.
