Kroniek van het mededingingsrecht

Kroniek van het mededingingsrecht

Kroniek van het mededingingsrecht

23.04.2019 EU law

De Europese Commissie, grotendeels in samenwerking met de mededingingsautoriteiten van de lidstaten, blijft actief op zoek naar de juiste middelen en benadering om verstoring van de mededinging te voorkomen, vooral waar het gaat om online-markten en situaties waarin de mogelijkheden van Europese burgers worden beperkt te profiteren van de voordelen die de interne markt biedt.

De Facebook-zaak van het Bundeskartellamt en de diverse zaken tegen farmaceutische ondernemingen illustreren dat mededingingsautoriteiten zich meer dan in de afgelopen jaren zullen richten op uitbuiting van gebruikers en zich daarbij niet zullen laten tegenhouden indien enige overlap gaat ontstaan met regels (op het gebied van privacy of anders) die de belangen van consumenten rechtstreeks beschermen. De Commissie liet tevens zien dat zij onversaagd vasthoudt aan haar mededingingsbeleid. Ook de vorming van Europese kampioenen zal, hoe politiek gewenst ook, zonder pardon verboden worden als daar mededingingsrechtelijke redenen voor zijn.

Deze kroniek behandelt de ontwikkelingen in het mededingingsrecht in Nederland en de Europese Unie (EU) in de periode 1 maart 2018 - 1 maart 2019. Deze kroniek bespreekt alleen de meest relevante ontwikkelingen en is een selectie. Enkele ontwikkelingen die in maart 2019 plaatsvonden, zijn nog meegenomen in deze kroniek.

Directors' liability due to competition law infringements by the company

Short Reads - The District Court Noord-Nederland recently allowed the trustees in bankruptcy of Northsea shrimp trading company Heiploeg to recover part of a EUR 27 million cartel fine from a former director. Internationally, the question whether companies can recover competition law fines through civil claims against individuals involved in the competition law infringement, is controversial. The court held, however, that the director’s personal involvement in the infringement amounted to ‘serious mismanagement’, triggering personal liability to pay damages.

If you can’t stand the heat: kitchen retailers fined for misleading consumers

Short Reads - There is a new enforcement trend in the Netherlands; consumer protection is shifting from private enforcement before the civil courts, to public enforcement through the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM), the combined antitrust and consumer protection authority. This is not mere cheap talk from the authority; multimillion fines have already been imposed on Dutch telecom operators and a Dutch energy company, whereas fines approximating one million euro have been imposed on three kitchen retailers, all for allegedly misleading consumers.
