Division with Jurisdiction over Defense of Competition

The Division with Jurisdiction over Defense of Competition is the Functional Agency that hears, in the second and last administrative instance, the proceedings related to the defense of competition, as a consequence of appeals filed by the parties against a ruling or resolution that ends at the first instance, so that the case may be reviewed by a higher body.

It also solves complaints filed against the Commissions on competition issues, against the Indecopi Court Divisions or any official who works in them, on alleged deficiencies in the processing of a legal action. Additionally, this Division rules on requests for clarification, extension and amendment.

  • The Commission for Elimination of Bureaucratic Barriers
  • The Regional Offices for Eliminating Bureaucratic Barriers, based in the provinces
