The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) makes independent decisions on what to investigate. If there is information suggesting that anti-competitive collusion or abuse of dominant position might have occurred, it can be shared with the CMA. The CMA will consider whether there are matters that should be investigated under its enforcement powers.
