The Luxembourg Government issues a proposal to amend the Competition Act and to merge the two Competition Authorities of the country

In 2007 the Minister of Economy filed on behalf of the Luxemburg government a law proposal to the Luxembourg Parliament (Chambre des députés) to amend the 2004 Competition Act (Loi du 17 mai 2004 relative à la concurrence). The proposal in essence aims to integrate the Competition Inspection (Inspection de la Concurrence) into the services of the Competition Council (Conseil de la Concurrence) in order to create synergies in terms of resources between the two competition authorities and, hence, to enhance their effectiveness. The Competition Inspection is a service within the Ministry of Economic Affairs, managed by a rapporteur général. It receives complaints and assesses the evidence of possible cartels and abuses of dominance under the 2004 Competition Act or Articles 101 and 102 TFEU.
