Covid–19 coronavirus update: global application of antitrust rules

Adverse economic or social conditions have not historically tended to affect the general application and enforcement of antitrust rules. This remains the overall position in the circumstances of Covid-19, with many antitrust authorities expressly stating that they will continue to actively monitor business behaviour and take strict action against infringements. Nevertheless, some authorities have announced that, in certain limited scenarios, they will apply exemptions from, or relaxations of, the rules. The table below sets out an overview, based on our current awareness of the position, of the different approaches being taken by authorities around the world. It will be updated regularly to track the situation as it evolves. Any exemption from the antitrust rules or relaxation in an authority's approach to enforcement is shown in red.
