Remedies: holding businesses to account

Adam Land, Competition and Markets Authority

When investigating mergers or specific industries, we look to see if there are any competition problems that could lead to people paying higher prices or not having a good enough range of options to choose from.

If we’re concerned people are losing out, we then take action, by developing solutions businesses need to implement to address our concerns. These are known as remedies. They can be one-off actions or on-going requirements.
