Chapter 11 analyses the RTC provisions related to competition law and consumer protection. It explains the nature and functions of the CARICOM Competition Commission and its crucial role in preventing cross-border anti-competitive conduct, including abuse of a dominant position. Offering comparative analysis of the ECJ jurisprudence on competition law, it explains the processes through which a complaint may be investigated, adjudicated and, if substantiated, sanctioned. It distinguishes between agreements, decisions, and concerted practices of enterprises and abuse of a dominant position. It briefly examines the complex requirements for establishing the relevant market, requirements that must be satisfied to prove an abuse of a dominant position. It examines the applicability of competition law to states and public undertakings. It concludes by briefly analysing CARICOM’s consumer protection regime.
