Legislation and regulations, and powers of the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets

Below is an overview of the regulations and pieces of legislation that govern the tasks and powers of the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM). ACM is an autonomous administrative authority (under Dutch law) and is part of the Dutch central government, but is officially not part of any ministry. When drawing up and publishing decisions, ACM follows the rules of the Dutch General Administrative Law Act (Algemene wet bestuursrecht, Awb). The Establishment Act of the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets was amended on August 1, 2014. As a result of this amendment, the powers of the three regulators that merged into ACM have been streamlined.
