Launch of the Vertical Block Exemption Regulation Review

On 3 October 2018 the Commission has launched the Review of the Vertical Block Exemption Regulation

Gazprom inquiry

The European Commission invites comments from all interested parties on commitments submitted by Gazprom to address the Commission's competition concerns as regards gas markets in Central and Eastern Europe. The commitments will enable cross-border gas flows at competitive prices.

Commissioner in charge of competition policy, Margrethe Vestager, said: "We believe that Gazprom's commitments will enable the free flow of gas in Central and Eastern Europe at competitive prices. They address our competition concerns and provide a forward looking solution in line with EU rules. In fact, they help to better integrate gas markets in the region. This matters to millions of Europeans that rely on gas to heat their homes and fuel their businesses. We now want to hear the views of customers and other stakeholders and will carefully consider them before taking any decision."
