The Antitrust Authority may officially inform the Government, Parliament, the Regions and Local Authorities whenever pre-existing or emergent legislative and administrative measures promise to create restrictions on competition. Starting in 2010, the annual report submitted by the Antitrust Authority to the Presidency of the Council identifies all laws that hinder competition and that, as a consequence, should either be eliminated or reformulated. The Government presents Parliament

with a draft law - the annual law on competition - that incorporates the Antitrust Authority's indications and specifies any sectors it has decided not to apply them to.

In accordance with the laws on consumer protection, the Antitrust Authority also informs the legislature and local authorities of any laws that have negative consequences for their constituents.
