    Is the expressione:
    level playing field
    correct? Or it is Levelled playing field ?

    I believe you are referring to the expression "to level the playing field". This means to take away the competition and make the contest or evaluation or "something" equal. If you level the playing field, you give equal opportunity to all players (people) involved.

    Some examples of how the phrase "a level playing field" is used in the UK:

    This ban must operate at every airport within the EU, to create a level playing field

    The UK government has a 'level playing field' policy for use of Open Source Software

    ...calls for more consistent implementation and compliance to promote a level playing field across the member states​
