Flavio Laina and Elina Laurinen (DG Comp) describe The EU Cartel Settlement Procedure: Current Status and Challenges.
ABSTRACT: Since 2008, six cartel settlements have been concluded successfully. In one additional case, discussions have discontinued due to lack of progress and the Commission has reverted to the standard procedure. A new wave of cases is currently being dealt with under that procedure. Lessons are being drawn from these experiences and discussions are currently underway to further streamline the process.
