State of Compliance

  • Competition Law

    Competition Law

    Since its establishment in 2013, the Agency for Competition Protection (ACP) has not applied competition law to the energy sectors, except for the review of mergers. More intense enforcement of competition law, in particular with regard to anticompetitive agreements and the abuse of dominance, is needed in order for Montenegro to fully live up to the expectations of the Energy Community Treaty. In the reporting period, amendments to the rules of procedure were adopted for the individual exemptions to restrictive agreements due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • State Aid Law

    State Aid Law

    After taking over the competence for State aid control in 2018, the ACP has so far not rendered any decisions in the energy sectors regarding State aid. The Agency for Competition Protection (ACP) adopted a temporary framework for State aid in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and a notice on the notion of State aid.
