Regulation Policy in Germany faces the problem of establishing specific authorities for regulation in the network sectors such as electricity, railways and telecommunication.

These arguments especially concern the captiveness of regulators and the persistence of regulation authorities once established. Therefore, it should be the task of an extended German Federal Cartel Office to support open network provision and competition in the field of network sectors.
