SYNTHESIS

Keynote

William Kovacic stated the phenomenon of adaptation by competition agencies to new requirements and its importance for the development of a regulatory system is global in scope. In this context, the 1973 National Petroleum Refiners decision has passed its expiration date as a basis to guide future rulemaking.
