Abstract

In the first part of this chapter, an examination is made of the investigations which took place into the conference system during the early years and also political actions at national, regional and international levels which helped shape that landscape. This is followed by a discussion on US and EU policies which were applied in the trans-Atlantic trade since the 1990s depicting a close focus for activity as the conference lines tried over a 10–15 year period to adapt their processes to the new era of increasingly intensive regulation. The second part of this chapter focuses on competition policy and legislation in the US and EU followed by developments in other jurisdictions including Australia, Canada, Japan and Singapore.
