The UK has established rules and policies to ensure competition enhances overall economic welfare. Two key rules, covered in Chapter I and Chapter II of the Competition Act 1998, address anti-competitive agreements and the abuse of market power. Additionally, the Enterprise Act 2002 prohibits cartels. This course explains the consequences of engaging in anti-competitive behaviour and describes how to identify practices that infringe UK competition law.
