ICC call to action on COVID-19 and competition

Competition policy and enforcement measures aimed at contributing to an effective COVID-19 response.

Developed by the ICC Commission on Competition, in line with ICC commitments to help chart an effective international response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this framework paper comprises policy measures already adopted or under consideration in many countries.

The aim of the paper is to help governments and competition agencies minimise the negative economic impacts caused by the COVID-19 crisis while protecting fundamental economic and market structures necessary for a post-crisis recovery.

The ICC Commission on Competition is recognised as a venue for exchange and innovation and is the voice of business on competition law issues within intergovernmental forums including the European Union, the International Competition Network (ICN), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as competition agencies.
