Vi forsyner Danmark - Visioner for forsyningssektoren

Resumé

Den 15. marts 2017 lancerede DANVA, Dansk Fjernvarme, Dansk Affaldssortering, Danske Vandværker og Danske Kravarmeværker en rapport, der skitseret deres visioner for fremtidens forsyningssektor. Rapporten ”Vi forsyner Danmark”, angav bl.a. at Forsyningssekretariatet under KFST skulle have beregnet at der alene var et resterende effekviseringspotenale i vandsektoren frem til 2020 på 100 millionerkroner. Forsyningssekretariaten afviste dette i en pressemeddelelse og påpeget at der snare fortsat bestod et meget betydeligt effekviseringspotenale i vandsektoren. Rapporten bør ses som et partsindlæg i debatten om effektiviseringspotentialet i forsyningssektoren, herunder Forsyningssekretariatets udsendelse af en analyse 4/3-17.

ECN MODEL LENIENCY PROGRAMME

Resumé

In a system of parallel competences between the European Commission (hereinafter the Commission) and National Competition Authorities (hereinafter NCAs), an application for leniency1 to one authority is not to be considered as an application for leniency to another authority. It is therefore in the interest of the applicant to apply for leniency to all Competition Authorities (hereinafter CAs) which have competence to apply Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (hereinafter TFEU) in the territory which is affected by the infringement and which may be considered well placed to act against the infringement in question. The purpose of the ECN Model Leniency Programme (hereinafter the ECN Model Programme) is to ensure that potential leniency applicants are not discouraged from applying as a result of the discrepancies between the existing leniency programmes within the ECN. The ECN Model Programme therefore sets out the treatment which an applicant can anticipate in any ECN jurisdiction once alignment of all programmes has taken place. In addition, the ECN Model Programme aims to alleviate the burden associated with multiple filings in cases for which the Commission is particularly well placed by introducing a model for a uniform summary application system. The ECN Model Programme sets out a framework for rewarding the cooperation of undertakings which are party to agreements and practices falling within its scope. The ECN members commit to using their best efforts, within the limits of their competence, to align their respective programmes with the ECN Model Programme. The ECN Model Programme does not prevent a CA from adopting a more favourable approach towards applicants within its programme.

Best Practices on Cooperation between EU National Competition Authorities in Merger Review

Resumé

The national competition authorities of the EU who have responsibility for merger review (“NCAs”) operate in compliance with different national legal systems. They believe, however, that it is desirable to cooperate in the review of some mergers which meet the requirements for notification or investigation in more than one Member State (“multi-jurisdictional mergers”), and have therefore decided jointly to publish an agreed set of Best Practices on Co-operation in Merger Review. This document, which has been drawn up by the EU Merger Working Group, sets out the Best Practices which the NCAs, to the extent consistent with their respective laws and enforcement priorities, aim to follow when they review the same merger transaction. It also sets out the steps that merging parties and third parties are encouraged to take in order to facilitate cooperation between NCAs. Cooperation extending beyond the existing ECA Notice system is limited to NCAs who are reviewing the same merger transaction (“the NCAs concerned”). It is not intended that cooperation should provide a forum whereby NCAs not concerned will be involved in the review of a specific case. This document is intended to provide a non-binding reference for cooperation between NCAs. NCAs reserve their full discretion in the implementation of these Best Practices and nothing in this document is intended to create new rights or obligations which may fetter that discretion.
