This chapter examines the transposition of the Antitrust Damages Directive in Spain. It begins with a general overview of the transposition process, focusing on the Transposition Decree that inserts new articles in the Defence Competition Act of 2007 and in the Civil Procedure Act. It then describes the material, territorial, and temporal scope of the Transposition Decree before analysing the main issues concerning antitrust damages claims affected by the Transposition Decree or that may be relevant in future actions for damages, such as those relating to the jurisdiction of competent courts to decide damages claims based on infringements of competition law, the right to full compensation, joint and several/parental liability, passing-on of the harm and claims by indirect purchasers/suppliers, the limitation period for bringing damages claims, the use of alternative dispute resolution procedures, measures to facilitate claims, and collective claims and consumer redress.
