In this white paper, we outline the fundamentals of the proposed regime, the timeline for its implementation, and how the UK’s current political developments might influence ​it.

In May 2022, the UK Government outlined its approach to a pro-competition regime for digital markets, building upon the recommendations of its appointed Digital Markets Taskforce. The regime seeks to provide the Digital Markets Unit (DMU), established in 2021 on a non-statutory footing, with several tools to ensure fair competition, innovation, and growth in the digital sectors​, and will be brought into force by the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumer Bill. ​
