The UK implements the EU Competition Damages Directive

On 20 December 2016, the UK Regulations to implement the EU Damages Directive were laid before Parliament, coming into force on 9 March 2017. The UK Regulations will apply to claims relating to cartels arising on or after 9 March and some aspects of the Regulations will apply to clams where the cartel existed before that date.
