Competition Policy

Compliance

Compliance means respecting the law.  In the field of competition, compliance means proactively respecting competition rules.

Why is compliance important?

Compliance is the prime responsibility of large, medium and small companies alike to comply with competition rules.  Companies need to be aware of the risks of infringing these rules and of how to develop and implement a compliance strategy.

An effective compliance strategy enables a company to minimise the risk of involvement in competition law infringements, and the costs attached to anti-competitive behaviour.

However, should an infringement be found, the mere existence of a compliance strategy will not be taken into consideration when determining any potential fine.
