Response to the CMA’S consultation on the retained Vertical Agreements Block Exemption Regulation
CMA recommendation

Yesterday the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) published its recommendation to the UK Government as to whether the existing VBER which has been retained from EU law should be renewed or varied. The CMA recommended that the Retained VBER should be replaced with a UK Vertical Agreements Block Exemption Order, alongside certain other updates to take account of market developments.

Eversheds Sutherland, the UK Distribution Law Center contributor, provided comments to the CMA on this matter. The input provided to the CMA can be found here.
