CMA Consults On Its 2018/19 Annual Plan

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is consulting on its draft annual plan, which sets out its plans and priorities over the next year. Interested parties have the opportunity to provide views and comments on the proposed priorities until 14 January 2018.

Over the next year, the CMA is proposing to take a particular interest in vulnerable consumers and ensuring that markets can be trusted; by working with partners, including groups which represent vulnerable consumers, to learn more about how people’s circumstances can affect their ability to engage in markets and get a fair deal. The CMA also plans to better connect the CMA and the role of competition with wider society; and continue to expand its digital analysis capabilities.

It will continue its preparations for Brexit by building its capacity and capabilities to prepare for a greater role in the review of global mergers and international competition enforcement investigations post-Brexit. It also plans to increase its presence and capabilities outside London by opening a new Edinburgh office.

The CMA plans to publish a final version of the plan and a summary of the responses in March 2018.
