Competition

The USCIB Competition committee promotes international legal policies that favor an open and competitive environment for U.S. business. The committee monitors global competition developments and contributes industry’s perspective through USCIB’s network.

The U.S. government uses the International Competition Network (ICN) and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to pursue international cooperation on competition laws, including the coordination of cartel enforcement. The committee, USCIB and its international affiliates serve as a strong voice for business at both the OECD and the ICN.

Through participation in the Business Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD, USCIB is able to advocate for global business goals at OECD roundtable discussions addressing a range of global competition concerns. Additionally, the committee advises U.S. government officials, including the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, on business positions concerning international antitrust issues and secures their support for those positions in international fora.
