The Budapest Regional Competition Center (hereinafter - OECD RCC) was established by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and the Hungarian Competition Authority on 16 February 2005, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by the parties.
The main task of the OECD RCC is to promote the development of competition policy, competition law and competition culture in South-Eastern, Eastern and Central Europe.
During 2016 - 2019, in cooperation with the OECD RCC, representatives of the AMCU participated in study visits conducted to various countries of Eastern and Central Europe. In connection with the COVID-19 epidemic, from the beginning of 2020 the AMCU representatives take part in online events organized by the OECD RCC.
Also, in order to conduct consultations and adopt best practices in the field of competition protection, the AMCU in cooperation with the OECD RCC exchanges non-confidential information with other European competition authorities in the region, by RFI forms (Informal Request for Information).
In addition, the AMCU provides articles to the OECD RCC biannual newsletter "Competition Policy in Eastern Europe and Central Asia”.
