Can Antitrust Compliance Affect Leniency and Enforcement? The Chemicals Cartel Pattern
Organized by the Global Competition Law Centre of the College of Europe
The query is whether a significant investment in compliance measures can prompt earlier reporting of cartels in return for leniency and a drop in the number of infringements. The chemical cartels represent an interesting study (of the 69 cartel decisions delivered by the Commission between 2000-2010, 28 involved chemical products). An internal corporate amnesty programme can also represent a unique feature. Join this virtual lunch talk for an insightful discussion.
