CASE COMENTS: PROCEDURES – FRANCE – COMMITMENTS – REQUEST FOR REVIEW

Interchange fee: The French Competition Authority rejects for the first time a request for a review of a decision making legally binding commitments (MasterCard)

*This article is an automatic translation of the original article, provided here for your convenience. Read the original article. Although very short, the present decision of the Authority is certainly worth mentioning, for at least two reasons: firstly, it is the first decision in which the Authority has formally decided on a request for waiver of commitments made binding in one of its previous decisions and, secondly, the procedure in question has led the Authority to formally request the Commission's opinion on a question of interpretation of European Union law before adopting its decision. Justifications for the request for the lifting of commitments The case stems from MasterCard's request for the lifting of the commitments made binding by Decision 13-D-17 of 20 September 2013.
