Section 47: Appeals against orders and penalties and Schedule 3: Appeals against orders and penalties

154.Section 47 gives effect to Schedule 3 which sets out the decisions against which a person may appeal to the Competition Appeal Tribunal in respect of action to enforce licence conditions, and the circumstances in which the Competition Appeal Tribunal may allow an appeal. Appeals may be made against a decision to give an enforcement order or to confirm an urgent enforcement order, the specified steps to be taken and the period allowed for taking those steps. A decision to modify or revoke such an order may be appealed. Appeals may also be made against a decision to impose a penalty, the period allowed for payment, the amount of the penalty or, in the case of daily amounts, the period during which daily amounts accumulate. An appeal against an enforcement order or urgent enforcement order, or an appeal against a penalty for contravention of a licence condition or order, may be made by the person to whom the order has been given or on whom the penalty has been imposed (as the case may be). Appeals against modification and revocation of enforcement orders may be made by a person who is not the person to whom the order was given and who appears to the Competition Appeal Tribunal to have sufficient interest in the decision. The making of an appeal against an enforcement order, but not an urgent enforcement order, suspends the effect of the order until the appeal is decided or withdrawn, unless the Competition Appeal Tribunal orders otherwise. A further appeal may be made on a point of law arising from a decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
