The ECN Plus Directive seeks to remedy the uneven enforcement of EU Competition Law in the Member States. The key objective is the harmonization of national procedural rules governing the parallel enforcement of EU Competition Law by National Administrative Competition Authorities and the alignment of their enforcement powers with that of the Commission. Main elements include uniform rules on their legal and operational independence and adequate resources, investigative powers, sanctions and fines, leniency, and mutual assistance.
