Notes for editors
The CMA is the UK’s primary competition and consumer authority. It is an independent non-ministerial government department with responsibility for carrying out investigations into mergers, markets and the regulated industries and enforcing competition and consumer law. From 1 April 2014 it took over the functions of the Competition Commission (CC) and the competition and certain consumer functions of the Office of Fair Trading, under the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013.
The Water Industry Act 1991 requires Ofwat in accordance with the terms of Bristol Water’s licence to refer any disputed determination of price limits to the CMA for determination.
All the CMA’s functions in price determination appeals are performed by inquiry groups chosen from the CMA’s panel members which act as the decision-makers. The members of this appeal group will be confirmed shortly.
