Econometrics in Articles 102 and 102 TFUE cases

May 2016

Revue Concurences

This article examines how econometrics is used in Articles 101 and 102 TFEU cases.

It argues that econometrics, while being increasingly common, is restricted to a small sample of its potential applications in nonmerger cases.

It then proceeds by reviewing recent cartel investigations led by the French national competition authority in order to examine how econometric evidence is handled in practical cases.

It finds that clearer guidelines about what constitutes admissible evidence and a more consistent approach between cases would contribute to raising the standards of econometric evidence.
