The OECD has posted Key Points on Procedural Fairness and Transparency.
ABSTRACT: How important is procedural fairness and transparency in competition enforcement proceedings to ensuring citizens’ confidence and belief in a fair and legal system and in those applying the law? What benefits arise for enforcement agencies from a fairer and more transparent enforcement process? The OECD published on Monday 30 April 2012 its Key Points on Procedural Fairness and Transparency, a publication which summarises three roundtable discussions held on the topic during 2010 and 2011. This publication, which includes an introduction to the topic by Sharis A. Pozen as well as the executive summaries, and summaries of the discussion of the roundtables, is available here.
