    Position Paper. Toezicht op algoritmes

    Autoriteit Consument en Markt


    When markets function well businesses compete fairly with one another, and people and businesses are not harmed by unfair practices. Algorithmic applications of market participants may result in markets not functioning properly. To the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (hereinafter: ACM), algorithmic applications are relevant if they play a role in activities that touch on the areas that the ACM oversees. This may, for example, be the case if algorithmic applications lead to price discrimination, cartel behaviour among market participants, or to a certain design of the online choice architecture for purchasing products where the consumer, against their own economic interests, takes a decision about a transaction that they would not have taken otherwise. The ACM sets out which challenges it faces when overseeing algorithms.
