Title: The New Horizontal Guidelines: Standardisation
Authors: Maher, Imelda

Date: Mar-2014
Abstract: This article provides an overview of how standardisation agreements are viewed under the European Commission guidelines as well as the Commission DG for Enterprise White Paper on Standardisation of Information and Communication Technologies, the latter being a necessary part of the regulatory framework for standardisation agreements in the EU.  It suggests that as the guidelines see the pro-competition effect of standardisation agreements as the norm A101 TFEU will not generally be applicable and the antagonistic interface of standardisation agreements and A101 will be exceptional, but a role of A102 TFEU remains.
