In the present article, I present the main issues surrounding the reform process, its reasoning and the result it brought to the European Community's ("EC") competition policy on vertical restraints. Furthermore, I summarize some of the reactions by other bodies of the EC and industry sectors toward this reform process. Finally, I will discuss the responses by business toward these changes in the EC rules to vertical restraints and the way enterprises will operate in the Member States of the EC.
