EAEU Competition Law: What’s in a Name?

P. 121-139.
Entin K., Diyachenko E.

The chapter opens with a brief overview of the provisions of the Treaty on the Eurasian
Economic Union (EAEU) establishing the general principles and rules of competition. It
further presents a detailed analysis of the main features and characteristics of the EAEU
competition law. Among the issues discussed in this article is the direct effect and direct
applicability of the general rules of competition, the relation between EAEU and national
competition law provisions as well as the division of competence between the Eurasian
Economic Commission and national competition authorities. The relevant features and
provisions of EAEU competition law, such as the notion of ‘coordination of economic activity’
are analysed through the prism of the EAEU Court’s advisory opinions. The authors also use
a comparative approach drawing parallels and underlining the differences with EU law and
the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). Finally, the authors also
examine the mechanisms of judicial protection available under EAEU law to economic entities
in the field of competition law.
