    Competition Law

    In the reporting period, the Commission for Protection of Competition (CPC) mainly focused on the review of mergers. It closed an investigation initiated in 2016 against Elektrodistribucija Srbije d.o.o. Beograd, in which the CPC had examined whether an obligation imposed by the said company on all users of the distribution system, except the public enterprise Elektroprivreda Srbije JP Beograd - Ogranak EPS Snabdevanje, to deposit funds as a guarantee for payment of receipts for the service of accessing the system constituted an infringement of competition law. Elektrodistribucija Srbije d.o.o. Beograd proposed voluntary commitments to eliminate the CPC’s concerns and implemented them within the deadline imposed.

    The new Law on State Aid Control provides for a new structure of the authority, comprising the Commission for State Aid Control and the Secretariat as a supporting body, replacing the previous Department for State Aid Control within the Ministry of Finance and thereby ensuring independence. The Commission for State Aid Control has not rendered any decision in the energy sector in the reporting period.
