In the consultation document, “A competition regime for growth: A consultation on options for reform”, published in March 2011, the Government invited views and evidence on proposals to extend super-complaint status to SME representative bodies to give small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) a stronger voice in raising competition problems. The accompanying impact assessment considered that cases bought by SME representative bodies could potentially improve efficiency in the supply chain provided these were properly focused on competition. The impact assessment did not identify any business burden with the proposals. Given the lack of significant support for this proposal and the absence of evidence of the type of issues that may be bought to the CMA as a potential SME super-complaint, the Government decided not to extend the super-complaint mechanism.
