Ingrid Breit, Jeroen Capiau, and Andrew Essilfie (DG Comp) discuss Compliance with Competition Rules—The Way to Go.
ABSTRACT: Any effort by a company to ensure compliance with EU competition rules is important. But what is critical is the fact that the rules are actually complied with. When it comes to taking practical steps to ensure compliance, firms should keep in mind that their efforts will be assessed by competition authorities on the basis of results or, in other words, by their success in avoiding infringements.
