Greek Watchdog Launches Public Consultation Into e-Commerce Sector

The Hellenic Competition Commission (“HCC”), taking into account the increasing reliance of Greek consumers on e-commerce as an efficient channel for the distribution of goods and services, as well as the ability of contemporary technology tools to facilitate restrictions of competition in the digital environment, has initiated by decision of 11.03.2020 a sector inquiry into e-commerce, exercising the respective powers conferred on it pursuant to Article 40 of Law 3959/2011.

In the context of Phase I of the sector inquiry, we announce the launch of a public consultation and kindly invite all interested parties to express their views and comment on the competitive conditions in the e-marketplace. The stakeholders concerned may contribute to the public consultation by participating in the relevant teleconference held by the HCC in April, and/or by submitting their views in writing, in the form of a memo. 

For more details on the scope and objectives of the e-commerce sector inquiry, please visit the HCC’s webpage dedicated to the sector inquiry, where you can also find specific information regarding your participation in the aforementioned public consultation.
