Review of SMP-Guidelines: WIK-Consult supports European Commission

According to the SMP guidelines adopted in 2002 the European Commission should aim at amending these Guidelines whenever appropriate, taking into account experience with the application of the regulatory framework and developments in the jurisprudence of the EU courts. In order to facilitate the review of the SMP guidelines the Commission awarded a study to WIK-Consult. The main objective of the study is to gather relevant information to assist the Commission in evaluating to which extent amendment of the SMP Guidelines is necessary. In this respect, experience of the NRAs and of the Commission with the application of the regulatory framework and developments in the jurisprudence of the EU Courts and of national courts will be taken into account. In particular the study draws attention on information as regards the developments of EU law and regulatory practice in relation to collective dominance.

WIK conducts the study in partnership with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP and Prof. Alexandre de Streel (University of Namur).
