Company
Ireland's Competition Authority
The Competition Authority is an independent statutory body that enforces Irish and EU competition law. The Competition Authority works to make sure that competition works for the benefit of all consumers, including businesses, who buy products and services in Ireland. This benefits everyone; consumers, businesses and the economy as a whole. Competition helps to keep prices down, improves choice and quality, encourages innovation and supports economic growth. The Competition Authority's mission is to ensure that markets work well for Irish consumers, business and the economy. It does this by taking action against anti-competitive practices, such as price-fixing; blocking anti-competitive business mergers; and informing Government, public authorities, businesses and the wider public about competition issues.
