Joint submission to European Commission guidelines on abuses of dominance

Privacy International joined a group of civil society organisations to respond to the European Commission’s Call for Evidence on the forthcoming Guidelines on exclusionary abuses of dominance under Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

Key advocacy points

This joint submission welcomes many of the changes the European Commission is proposing, above all moving away from the ‘as efficient competitor’ test and the narrow economic perspective this entails. It also makes a range of recommentions to both the amended Guidance and upcoming Guidelines including to better reflect the role of personal data in digital markets and the data exploitation of companies.
