Restrictions on entry or expansion

Deloitte’s response to the Competition Commission's working paper


Deloitte’s paper addresses the following and uses these as its structure:

  • The approach to assessing entry and expansion
  • Opportunities for entry
  • Intrinsic factors
  • Strategic barriers
  • Incumbency advantages and reputation
  • Regulatory barriers

Key findings

The paper finds that while the CC has set out a very wide range of potential barriers to entry, in practice Deloitte believes that there is little evidence that any is significant; and that it is critical that the CC takes more than a theoretical approach to the issue of barriers to entry and expansion.
