En los últimos años, tanto en la Unión Europea como en España, se ha procedido a descentralizar algunos aspectos relevantes de la política de defensa de la competencia. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar la interacción entre información y riesgo de captura asociada a esta nueva situación, partiendo de algunos modelos clásicos de regulación. Nuestros resultados confirman que, desde el punto de vista de los precios y la eficiencia productiva, la descentralización supone una mejora al incrementar la información que posee la agencia de la competencia sobre las empresas. Sin embargo, el riesgo de captura puede ser mayor, diluyendo así esa ventaja inicial y haciendo que la descentralización, especialmente, si no va acompañada de una independencia política de la agencia, no genere resultados globales mejores que los de la centralización.
