EU Regulation and Competition Law in the Transport Sector (2nd Edition)

Edited by Luis Ortiz Blanco, Ben Van Houtte


This book is the successor to EC Competition Law in the Transport Sector , published in 1996, to give an overview of the then emerging application of European law to the transport sector. Since that time, this subject has expanded dramatically. The original theme, competition law, has matured and given rise to an extensive case law applying EU antitrust, merger control, and State aid rules. This topic is now complemented by an even more significant body of regulation, dealing with a wide range of issues such as market access, consumer and worker protection, safety, security, interoperability, infrastructure, and international relations. Unfortunately, none of the major EU law commentaries treats this subject in detail, and this book fills an important gap. The book consists of twenty-two chapters written by expert European Commission officials and private practitioners and provides details on the EU regulatory and competition law framework applying to each transport mode, as well as the relevant jurisprudence. It is targeted at lawyers providing advice to transport firms or in academia, and serves as a first point of reference in a field that has become highly complex for non-specialists.
