A general introduction to Public Competition Enforcement in Türkiye

All questions


Law No. 4054 on the Protection of Competition (the Competition Law) has been in force since 1994 and the Turkish Competition Authority (TCA) was established in 1997.

The Turkish Competition Board (TCB) is the decision-making body of the TCA. The TCB is vested with special powers to enforce the competition rules regarding restrictive practices, abuse of dominance and mergers, as well as to draft and enact secondary legislation (i.e., regulations and communiques) for the implementation of the Competition Law. It also provides opinions on amendments to be made to competition legislation and monitors legislation, practices, policies and measures of other countries concerning agreements and decisions limiting competition. The TCA watches closely global developments in competition law enforcement, especially those made by the European Commission and national competition authorities.
