The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) is a member of the European Competition Network (ECN). This is a network of 27 competition authorities within the European Union and the DG Competition of the European Commission. The ECN provides a forum for discussion and cooperation of European competition authorities and ensures an effective and consistent application of EU competition rules.

Competition authorities across Europe, including the CCPC, are united in their condemnation of Russia’s unprecedented military aggression against Ukraine. We are fully aware of the social and economic consequences for Ukraine as well as for the EU/EEA. On 21 March the ECN issued a joint statement setting out the application of competition law in the context of this crisis.
