Archived CC cases added to CMA’s GOV.UK webpages

Details of 132 former Competition Commission (CC) investigations dating back to 2003 have been added to our case directory in the latest improvements to the CMA’s GOV.UK webpages.

CC cases that were completed before the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) came into existence in April 2014 had only been available on the archived CC website. However, a survey we carried out with our web users indicated that people had been finding these hard to locate.

So, from today these cases will also now be available on the CMA’s case directory and will be joined over the coming weeks by the Office of Fair Trading’s archived decisions.

There are a variety of ways to use the case directory to search for the CC cases. These include:

  • using the ‘closed before’ filter (eg adding ‘2014’)
  • searching using the title of the closed investigation
  • using the markets and mergers phase 2 options in the ‘outcome’ filter

Other improvements we have introduced, following our survey, include better navigation on our homepage, the opportunity to sign up for email alerts about updates to CMA cases by category and the ability to search for cases by date.

Further changes will be made to the CMA’s pages over the next few months, including the ability for users to subscribe to alerts about updates to individual cases.
