In 2014, the Law Reform Commission of Thailand proposed the guideline to enforce trade competition law to Prime Minister and National Legislative Assembly by pointing out the Thailand's 1999 trade competition law such as organizational problems and the structure of theboards, overall management and scope of law enforcement, offenses and penalties,especially the use of Leniency Programme. As the corroboration of the trade competition case is complex and complicated. Moreover, evidences are under the possession of the offender, it accordingly should allow the offender to repent and help the state, with reduced or impaired penalties, in proportion to the usefulness of the information provided for enforcement.
Subsequently, in 2017,Thailand adopted a new trade competition law, with significant changes in the nomination committee selection and appointment of committees of trade competition, and the trade competition office is organized by the Secretary-General of the Trade Competition Commission as a secretary of theIndependent Trade Commission. Although there are principles of law in line with the recommendation of the Law Reform Commission of Thailand about the aforesaidguideline to enforce trade competition law, it also lacks of clear major definitions such as "market," "market dominance," and " affiliated companies" to be able to calculate market marketing shares, as well as affiliated companies in type of nominee and can classify the offender. Moreover, the Leniency Program also provides the opportunity for the the accused or the offender, or those supportor know such offenses can provide information or evidences which are useful to the case prosecution with reduced or impaired penalties in proportion to theusefulness of the information provided for enforcement.
The Office of the Law Reform Commission of Thailand has an opinion that the importance of developing a competitive boardsystem in the country to solve the past failures is to gain committees with knowledge, expertise, and experiences in Laws and Economics as well as beingin dependent and impartial without having the conflict on interests in political and capital groups. In addition, the Office of Trade Competition Commissioners must work under the rule of law and due process of law. The rules are international standards, transparent, clear, and non-discriminatory as well as bringing modern and reliable technology to gather facts to prosecute for efficiency and fairness in trade competition in order to achieve sustainable development in the economy of the country.
