There are five substantive working groups in the ICN, addressing advocacy, agency effectiveness, cartels, mergers and unilateral conduct. Working Group members confer primarily via conference calls and e-mails, and hold periodic teleseminars and workshops. Working Groups organize panel and small group discussions at the annual conference and present work product for adoption.
Working Groups benefit from broad participation of members from different geographic regions and stages of development. If your agency would like to get more involved in an ICN working group, please visit the home page of the Working Group or Groups that interest you and email or call the listed contacts. Alternatively, you may contact the ICN Secretariat for suggestions about where your agency might best contribute.
If you are a national or multinational competition agency or a competition agency of a customs territory entrusted with the enforcement of competition law(s) that has not yet joined the ICN, we encourage you to do so. Click here for membership information and an application to join the ICN.
ICN members work closely with non-governmental experts, including private practitioners, academics, representatives of international organizations, and industry and consumer groups, resulting in work product that benefits from the input of a wide spectrum of perspectives. If you are interested in our work and would like to become involved in one or more Working Groups please contact the member agency in your jurisdiction.
