complex monopoly
A situation under the Fair Trading Act 1973, where a number of companies which were not members of the same group of companies, and which together accounted for at least one quarter of the supply or acquisition of any particular description of goods or services in all or part of the UK, engaged in conduct which was or was likely to have the effect of restricting, distorting or preventing competition.
The Enterprise Act 2002 has now replaced the complex monopoly provisions of the Fair Trading Act 1973 with the new regime for market investigations.
