The Sectoral Regimes for Electronic Communications and Energy

(p.223) IX The Sectoral Regimes for Electronic Communications and Energy
Coherence in EU Competition Law

Wolf Sauter

Oxford University Press

Electronic communications and energy are two sectors that are subject to detailed regulatory regimes set out at the European Union (EU) level. They are applied by sectoral national regulatory authorities (NRAs) and coordinated by sectoral network agencies (the Body of European Regulators of Electronic Communications (BEREC) and the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) respectively). These NRAs apply rules with regard to third party access that are based on competition law principles. Simultaneously, general competition law applies in parallel and has been used especially by the EU Commission to promote a liberalization agenda. This chapter looks at the relationship, similarities and differences between the two types of regime (general and specific).
