Welcome to the OECD Competition Enforcement Co-operation (CEC) Database. This database was designed to help improve transparency and trust in international enforcement co-operation between competition authorities by sharing data provided by over 60 jurisdictions worldwide.
The database gives consistent information regarding the ability of competition authorities to co-operate on enforcement matters, and provide counterpart authorities with easy-to-access information about their co-operation practices, processes and preferences.
5 sets of data are included:
The 5 sets of data above mentioned can be ticked in the field “Questions” which correspond to the online survey serving as a base to the collection of the data. The OECD Members appear first, followed by non-OECD Member countries.
This Database is part of a workstream on international enforcement co-operation developed by the OECD Competition Committee through its Working Party 3 on Co-operation and Enforcement (2021 OECD/ICN Report and Report to Council on the Implementation of the 2014 Recommendation.
The CEC Database is meant to be updated annually and it is open to all competition agencies worldwide regardless if they are OECD Members or not. The current version dates from August 2022 and was built based on a template survey circulated online to all OECD and ICN jurisdictions (access a pdf copy of survey here for information).
