The Decision of Turkish Constitutional Court Regarding the Amendments to Law No. 4054 on the Protection of Competition

The Turkish Constitutional Court (TCC) has made a significant decision regarding the amendments to the Law No. 4054 on the Protection of Competition through the Law No. 7246. The decision provides insights into the balance between the constitutional rights granted to undertakings and the obligations imposed on the Turkish Competition Authority. The TCC evaluated the annulment request filed by deputies under three categories: amendment of Article 9 regarding structural remedies, amendment of Article 15 concerning on-site inspections, and amendments regarding the status and appointment of Authority personnel. The TCC ruled that the amendments related to structural remedies and on-site inspections were in line with the principles of legality, legitimate purpose, and proportionality. However, the amendments regarding personnel status and appointment were annulled for being incompatible with the Constitution. This decision establishes a balance between regulatory powers and fundamental rights, leaving room for potential scrutiny of future laws and amendments.
