A White Book for the Reform of the Spanish Competition Law System
01 August 2005ECLR
On January 20, 2005, the Spanish Ministry of Economy presented to the public the White Book for the reform of the Spanish Competition Law System (‘‘White Book’’). The White Book is the result of 15 years of experience enforcing competition law since the Spanish Law for the Defence of Competition of 1989 was passed (‘‘Law 16/1989’’ or the ‘‘Spanish Competition Law’’). This has helped Madrid identify the gaps and shortcomings in the current legal and institutional framework.
