In the Czech Republic, the main legal provisions regarding protection of competition are contained in ACT No. 143/2001 Coll. of 4 April 2001 on the Protection of Competition and on Amendment to Certain Acts (Act on the Protection of Competition) as amended (the ‘Competition Act’). It is important to note that relevant competition law legislation on the European level, principally Articles 101 and 102 TFEU and Regulations 1/2003 and 139/2004 and also other relevant competition law regulations, are directly applicable in the Czech Republic and therefore play a key role as regards the protection of competition in the Czech Republic. Nevertheless, this report focuses on national competition law.
