This is a very nice doublet offered to us by Nathalie Jalabert-Doury. In 2019, the competition inspections of the French authorities were published. The book was praised for its very concrete approach, nourished by the author’s practice, ranging from the invocation of fundamental rights to the precautions to be taken either to prepare the company or at the time of the inspection. In 2020, the second volume deals with European Commission inspections under the regime of Regulation (EC) No 1/2003 and, to ensure wider dissemination, is being translated into English. Article 20 of that Regulation is broken down in all its aspects and implications, again ranging from fundamental rights on the arrival of inspectors, from questioning and seeking information to seals and precautions at the end of the inspection to appeals. The most practical aspects are considered with references to case law. The inspections carried out by the French Authority on behalf of the Commission are also presented. Lawyers and company lawyers will appreciate this approach which is both didactic and well documented.
