Student or Learner
"Article 81(3) entails an assessment of the pro- and anti-competitive effects of agreements and requires, for agreements to be exempt, that they are not unduly restrictive of competition."
I think "they are not unduly restrictive" is wrong and should read "that they not be unduly restrictive." The book I got that sentence from, however, was written by two Britons, and I've heard that the subjunctive is falling into disuse in the UK. My question, then, is whether a British teacher would accept such a construction as correct.
Agree -- I would use the subjunctive in this case.
Ask any number of American students what the subjunctive is and tell me how many of them give you the right answer :)
Not a teacher

Again, a matter of UK vs US usage.
