Estonian Competition Authority
The amendment to the Government of the Republic Act shall enter into force on 01.09.2015, modifying the provisions concerning the planning of the competition supervision at the national level. According to the amendment, the planning of the competition supervision and the Estonian Competition Authority were brought from the area of government of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications to the area of government of the Ministry of Justice in order to increase the independence of the Authority´s performance of its tasks.
With regard to the amendment the Statutes of the Authority has also changed. The former energy and water regulatory division is now regulatory division. Changing the name was required in order for it to meet the actual extent and nature of the work of the division.
