Proceedings of the Workshop on Competition Policy in International Agreements

Enforcement of fair competition is based on different rules around the world. This workshop aims to give an overview on existing and planned international agreements on cooperation in the field of competition policy.

The first session focuses on international cooperation in antitrust investigations and discusses how agreements are designed to ensure consistency in the prosecution of infringements and to overcome regulatory friction.

The second session looks into what is currently known about the chapter on competition policy in the Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) to help understanding the on-going negotiations. This Workshop was prepared by the Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON).

"Across the European Union, significant barriers remain that hamper efforts to enhance entrepreneurship and economic growth in the EU.” FRA interim Director Constantinos Manolopoulos.

This Wednesday, FRA publishes a new report on a lesser-known right of the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights: the freedom to conduct a business.

Iran: EU starts implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action

The Council adopted the first legal acts implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the agreement reached on 14 July 2015 in Vienna on the Iranian nuclear issue.

On 20 July 2015, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution endorsing the JCPOA. This resolution provides for certain derogations from restrictions currently in place so as to allow: 

- the shipment of certain nuclear-related equipment out of Iran, the modification of two cascades in Fordow and the modernization of the Arak reactor;
- transfers and activities necessary to implement certain nuclear-related commitments specified in the JCPOA or required for the preparation for the implementation of the JCPOA. 

The legal acts adopted by the Council translate into EU law these provisions. 

The legal acts are available in the Official Journal dated 1 August. They were adopted by the Council by written procedure.

Investing in Europe's bright future in fusion

The EU-funded FUSENET project created new learning opportunities for Europe's future fusion scientists by developing educational materials, organising internships and bringing academia and industry closer together. While the project may be officially over, the concept has been kept very much alive through the ever-expanding FUSENET Association.

Tehran | the recent deal with Iran shows that diplomacy and multilateralism can bring results – that was the message EU High Representative Federica Mogherini took with her when she visited Iran on Tuesday 28 July.

She stressed that the deal opened a new chapter in four areas: for Iran and the Iranian people; for Iran and in the International community; for relations between the EU and Iran; also a new framework of international cooperation in the Middle East to address other issues.

Watch the press conference and read her remarks in full: http://europa.eu/!mb87Yh ‪#‎IranDeal‬

Darknet hidden service for child sexual abuse material shut down

Europol's European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) has supported Italian law enforcement authorities to shut down a hidden service for distributing child sexual abuse material. The house of the Italian administrator has been searched and 14 000 bitcoin wallets have been seized.

Operation Babylon began two years ago when the Italian Postal and Communications Police uncovered a hidden service within the Darknet that was facilitating the exchange of child sexual abuse material. It was also servicing crime by hosting sellers of illegal commodities such as weapons, passport and identity documents, counterfeit and cloned credit cards, hacking services, and close to 210 sellers of drugs. The marketplace administrator earned a percentage from all of these transactions.

Italian State Police, supported by Europol's EC3 and undercover agents from Italy's National Centre for the Fight against Child Pornography Online (CNCPO), subsequently began an investigation to close in on the identified anonymised hidden service. Investigators discovered thousands of images online of young victims being abused, which were being exchanged by paedophiles in many hidden online locations on the Darknet. The investigation continued with the seizure of this illegal content.

Europol's EC3 provided support and coordination during the operation, the exchange and sharing of vital information and intelligence, and on-the-spot technical support in Campania, Italy, on 29 July 2015.
