Commitment decisions in competition law enforcement are a form of formal settlement, by which undertakings under investigation for a potential breach of competition law essentially commit with the investigating competition authority to modify their behaviour, thus ending its competition concerns. This has the benefit of bringing potentially anti-competitive behaviour to a more immediate end than conventional enforcement proceedings permit, and it results in considerable administrative and procedural efficiencies for the investigating authority, as well as various benefits for the alleged infringer.
