AIUI, competition law in the EU merely forbids differentiating between different coutries within Europe (the single market idea). So you can't charge someone in Finland a different price than someone in France. I don't think it has anything to say about discriminating EU vs non-EU.
Doing that would almost amount to forbidding any kind of discrimiation at all. But that's obviously silly, since you may not want to sell stuff to Africa or Asia, but you're not allowed to refuse to sell to a fellow European (for purely geographical reasons).
