Recent appeals of regulatory settlements have thrown into light the different grounds for and bases of appeals in each sector. This lecture will examine the basis on which appeals are made, whether the current structure of different appeals processes is suitable; whether there should instead be a common basis to achieve consistency and if so what it should be; and whether appeals should continue to be considered by the Competition and Markets Authority, or by the Competition Appeal Tribunal (as recommended by the Penrose report) or another body altogether.
