Working Documents on Policies Related to Competition and Regulation
The function of promoting and performing research work on the subject of competition has been assigned to the CNMC under article 5.2.h of Law 3/2013 of 4 June, on creation of the National Commission on Markets and Competition.
The series of Working Documents on Policies Related to Competition and Regulation are produced within the framework of this legal function and it originates from the commitment acquired in the CNMC's 2015 Action Plan, which includes production of these working documents as one of the actions (action 14.1).
The purpose of the Working Documents is to produce economic research in the areas of competition and regulation. On some occasions reports or research results from the CNMC may be included within the studies. The ultimate goal being pursued is to contribute to the defence and promotion of effective competition and efficient economic regulation in the Spanish economy.
Among other functions, we have been assigned the task of promoting and performing research work on the subject of competition.
