Effects of a 'no deal' EU Exit on the functions of the CMA


Draft guidance on CMA functions in the event of a 'no deal' EU Exit.

This consultation closes at

Consultation description

Leaving the EU with a deal remains the Government’s top priority. This has not changed. However, we must plan for every eventuality, including a ‘no deal’ scenario. We are intensifying and accelerating ‘no deal’ planning to ensure we are fully prepared.

We are inviting views on the effects of a ‘no deal’ EU Exit on the functions of the CMA. The draft guidance covers:

  • the legal framework
  • merger control
  • enforcement of competition law prohibitions (antitrust, including cartels)
  • consumer protection law enforcement
