This article considers the new United Kingdom Competition Act 1998 which is modelled closely on the Community competition provisions, Articles 85 and 86 of the E.C. Treaty. It examines some of the key provisions of the new Act and highlights potential areas of difficulty, in particular the application of Community rules and concepts. The article concludes that although reform of the United Kingdom competition law is welcome, harmonisation with the Community model is fraught with difficulties.
