How would you interpret this question?Watch
“It was a good decision to empower national competition authorities and domestic courts to enforce EU competition law. Now that Regulation 1/2003 has been in force for almost a decade it is ﬁtting to focus on the private enforcement of EU competition law. It is time for the EU to take the action.”
Discuss critically taking into account the Regulation 1/2003, relevant case-law and policy
Now, I do not want anybody to answer this for me in the slightest. However, what I am asking for, is for somebody to tell me how they would interpret this question?
My intention would be to primarily write about a critique regarding the lack of legislation and procedure in order to bring a private enforcement claim within the national courts (the bit in bold and red). However, I have a feeling I may be required to critique whether it was a good decision to allow the DC and NCAs to enforce EU competition law (the bit in bold and blue). It's an assignment with a 4,000 word count, so I can only imagine that it will cover both parts?
Anyway help is majorly appreciated!
