On July 12 2012 the Ministry of Transport submitted a demand (01-26-7-08-I/12) to the Competition Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina, requesting an opinion on the compliance of the draft Law on Transport by Taxi with the Competition Act (Official Gazette of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 48/05, 76/07 and 80/09). In early October 2012, the council issued a negative opinion.
On analysing the draft law, the council concluded that some of its provisions breached the Competition Act. For example:
The Competition Council found that these provisions were restrictive in the sense that they had as their object or a consequence the prevention, limitation or distortion of competition. They limited competition by imposing different conditions on identical transactions, thus putting some taxi drivers in a less favourable position. It seems that the ministry's work on the new taxi law is not yet complete.
