Effective implementation of the state competition policy is impossible without assessment of the competitive environment on the market, since that very information is essential for making regulatory decisions. In the framework of antimonopoly regulation, the results of the market competitive situation assessment are used for classification of law violations and for making conclusions about actions aimed at restoration of the position in economics which existed prior to the violation of the competition law. In scientific circles, the issues of competitive situation assessment in the framework of state competition policy receive little attention. As a rule, scientific works are devoted to one of the stages of the mechanism of the research or to the results of analysis of a certain product or financial market.
Meanwhile, the topic under the study is acutely relevant, since antimonopoly regulation is one of the most dynamically developing spheres of public administration based on analytical studies, which determines the necessity to regulate and improve the means of the research.
In the article, the means of competitive situation assessment on the market, which is regulated by the Order No 220 of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of the Russian Federation, is presented as algorithms consisting of different stages depending on the purpose of the research. For the first time, a comparative analysis of the algorithms was carried out, special characteristics of certain stages of the researches have been marked. Some deficiencies of certain algorithms have been revealed, approaches to assessing the state of competition on the markets have been suggested, ensuring the achievement of the objectives of antimonopoly regulation as a part of state competition policy. Provided research results can be used for scientific, practical, and educational purposes in such fields as “Competition law” and “Competition policy”.
