Legal and Regulatory – Competition Law

Competition Law

OEUK’s competition law compliance policy is the basis for all our activities, and all our staff receive compliance training.

There are also two useful short guides on the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) website:

Competition law: dos and don’ts for trade associations 

Limiting risk in relation to competitors’ information.

The balance between the Oil and Gas Authority – seeking greater collaboration in the industry – and the CMA was addressed in a joint conference in 2015 entitled Striking the Right Balance, following which the CMA and the former Department of Energy & Climate Change exchanged letters.
