Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

ICN Survey on Investigative Process

leave a comment »


For the past several years, antitrust/competition law practitioners from more than 30 countries have participated in surveys developed by fellow practitioners, who serve as Non-Government Advisers to the International Competition Network (“ICN”). Past surveys were done to inform the ICN Agency Effectiveness Working Group and its Investigative Process Project (in 2014, the survey work was awarded NGA Contribution of the Year honors by the ICN).

The ICN has since issued a Guidance on Investigative Process report. As such, the 2016 practitioner survey will examine to what degree the ICN Guidance is followed in 14 markets: Australia, Brazil, Canada, E.U., France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, South Africa, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

If you would like to take the survey, you can do so via this link. Responses should focus on your experiences before a specific competition enforcement agency. If a question doesn’t apply to your jurisdiction or you don’t know the answer, you can skip it.

The identities of survey participants will be kept confidential and care will be taken to present survey answers in a general manner. In addition, respondents have an opportunity to review the summary report in draft form before it is shown publicly.

The deadline for response is Wednesday, November 23.
