The Swedish Competition Authority has adopted a policy setting out its priorities for dealing with competition and procurement matters.
During the latter part of 2009, the agency received comments and views sought from stakeholders on its proposals in this regard. A final policy has now been adopted. When deciding priority, the Competition Authority will weigh in the following factors:
- How serious the problem or offence is.
- How important it is to arrive at a leading decision.
- Whether another public authority or actor is in a better position to deal with the matter, or whether the matter would be better dealt with under some other law or regulation.
