FTC Bureau Of Competition

The FTC’s antitrust arm, the Bureau of Competition seeks to prevent anti competitive mergers and other anti competitive business practices in the marketplace. By protecting competition, the Bureau promotes consumers’ freedom to choose goods and services in an open marketplace at a price and quality that fit their needs – and fosters opportunity for businesses by ensuring a level playing field among competitors.

The Bureau fulfills this role by reviewing proposed mergers and other business practices for possible anticompetive effects, and, when appropriate, recommending that the Commission take formal law enforcement action to protect consumers. The Bureau also serves as a research and policy resource on competition topics and provides guidance to business on complying with the antitrust laws.

The FTC is careful to attend to segments of the economy that will have the greatest impact on behalf of consumers.
