This register includes:

  • in force temporary directions (interim measures) that have been imposed before the end of an investigation
  • in force final directions given at the end of an investigation (following an infringement decision)
  • commitments (current binding promises) that relate to the future conduct of a business and have been accepted by the CMA to address competition concerns
