The concluding chapter brings together the threads of the preceding discussion. It argues that, instead of classifying conduct as public or private, the real question for both the free movement and competition rules is how their interpretation should adapt to cases of private regulation. This adaptation is tracked through both free movement and competition law, and the proposed approach to the overlap of the two sets of rules is outlined. Finally, the concluding chapter looks at the broader implications of EU law for private regulators and their measures. It argues that EU internal market law functions as a legal accountability mechanism for private regulators. It also describes how the prevalence of private regulation in certain sectors has enabled the use of free movement and competition law as tools for reform, serving as a launchpad for the development of EU policies.
