Bundeskartellamt releases a statement about the Alphabet/Google abuse control

For the first time, the Federal Cartel Office has certified Google’s “overriding, cross-market importance” for competition and can now prohibit practices of the company that endanger competition. According to Andreas Mundt, President of the Bundeskartellamt, Google is now subject to extended abuse control. On this basis, his office can now “take up concrete practices that could be harmful to competition”.

At the end of May last year, the Federal Cartel Office initiated proceedings against Google and its co-company Alphabet under the new regulations for digital groups. Since then, the authority has been examining in principle the cross-market significance of the company for competition and has also been looking into data processing at Google.
