Updated annually, this volume of EU competition law materials serves both as the Materials volume of the Sixth Edition of Bellamy & Child: European Community Law of Competition, and as a free-standing work of reference in its own right. It includes legislation, notices and guidelines relevant to all areas of EU competition law (including Treaty provisions, modernisation and procedural matters, substantive antitrust matters, mergers and concentrations, sectoral regimes, public undertakings and State aids). It provides a one-stop resource for competition and antitrust practitioners worldwide. For ease of use, notes are included immediately below individual recitals and articles. These notes include the original Official Journal notes, identification of amendments and, as a major enhancement, thorough pinpoint cross-references to specific paragraphs where the relevant provisions are discussed in the Sixth Edition of Bellamy & Child and also the Second Edition of Faull & Nikpay: The EC Law of Competition.
A copy of this Materials volume is included with each volume of Bellamy & Child, and the sets will be updated annually to include the new materials volume and the supplement to the main work. The Materials volume is also available for purchase separately and will be updated annually. In addition, the materials themselves are kept regularly updated on a companion website. This 2012 edition includes key recent developments such as the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1217/2010 on the application of Article 101(3) to certain categories of research and development agreements; Commission Regulation (EU) No 1218/2010 on the application of Article 101(3) to certain categories of specialisation agreements and the new Guidelines on the applicability of Article 101 to horizontal cooperation agreements.
