The keeping of the enforcement record is based on the method used by the European Commission in keeping the record for similar purposes. It is based exclusively on the decisions on the merits, in other words, it includes solely the decisions where it is decided whether a particulate practice constitutes an infringement of the Competition Act or not.The enforcement record covering the period from 2008 – 2014 included the decisions on the merits regulated both under the Competition Act and the State Aid Act. In the period from 2015 – 2017 the enforcement record contained only the cases regulated under the Competition Act. Since 2018 the Croatian Competition Agency (CCA) has been also empowered for the enforcement of the Act on the prohibition of unfair trading practices in the business-to-business food supply chain (UTPs Act).The total of the decisions taken by the CCA covering also the decisions on the transfer of jurisdiction, opinions, comments, advocacy and similar matters, can be found in CCA annual reports for the respective year.
