Restriction of competition by state and self-administration authorities
More about the restriction of competition by state and self-administration authorities
Therefore, the Office may sanction also the conduct of state administration authorities, local self-administration authorities (municipalities and self-administration regions) and also self-governing authorities of interest (various chambers and professional associations) in case they perform state administration (the so called transferred performance of state administration) and local self-administration authorities also during the performance of self-administration.
Although this case does not represent the classic concept of competition law, this is a useful tool to enforce competition principles in creating other policies, mainly local policies.
Further information on the restriction of competition by state and self-administration authorities can be found at Slovak version of the Office´s website.
