European Commission

The European Commission (EC) is a part of the European Union, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the EU treaties and managing the day-to-day business of the EU. Decisions made by the EC are binding.

Decisions of the European Commission in relations to competition law and mergers should be treated as cases.
