The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today released its latest antitrust practitioner survey, which sought feedback based on practitioner experiences in working with enforcement agencies on matters of transparency and due process in investigative proceedings. The survey measured practitioner views on adherence to guidance issued by the International Competition Network (ICN) in 2015. While practitioners indicated that the guidance was effective in establishing international recommended best practices, consistency with regard to adherence to the guidance was flagged as a concern across different case teams within an agency.
For the fourth consecutive year a practitioner survey has been conducted to solicit feedback intended to better inform competition authorities and the International Competition Network (ICN) of the views and experiences practitioners have when working with their respective competition authority. Earlier surveys supported the work of the ICN’s Investigative Process Project as part of the Agency Effectiveness Working Group as well as the ICN’s Recommended Practices for Merger Notification and Review Procedures.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today released a report, Transatlantic Cybersecurity: Forging a United Response to Universal Threats, which proposes a set of recommendations that would more closely align the approaches of the United States and European Union regarding frameworks, standards, and practices for cybersecurity. The report was released as part of a business delegation led by the U.S. Chamber to Tallinn, Berlin, and Brussels to discuss transatlantic cybersecurity efforts.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is pleased to share this report. The Chamber and its members have long been committed to aligning trade, regulatory and competition policy in support of open and competitive markets. In recent years, however, the Chamber has grown concerned with disparate approaches to antitrust enforcement around the world and increasingly misguided uses of antitrust as a means to achieve industrial policy outcomes.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce welcomes a report issued today by an independent group of experts it commissioned to consider U.S. responses to the inappropriate use of antitrust enforcement actions worldwide to achieve industrial policy outcomes. In preparing the report, the group drew upon its members’ decades of experience in competition, trade, and economic policy in deliberations independent of the Chamber.
