Legal Issues Concerning Remedies in Network Industries


Remedies have always been a significant issue in the regulation of network industries, and they likely to gain further in significance in the coming years. Against the background of the sectoral contributions, this contribution aims at setting out some legal issues arising across the board.

These issues are sometimes more practical, sometimes more of a matter of principle. Some are not necessarily specific to network industries, but all of them have arisen in the course of applying competition law or regulation to network industries, even if not exclusively there.

They have been regrouped around three themes: the relationship between remedies and substantive analysis (I), the dynamic dimension of remedies (II) and institutional issues (III).
