Evonik Degussa v Commission: Hearing Officer’s Review of Confidentiality Claims on Leniency Information in Public Versions of European Commission Cartel Decision

Christian von Köckritz has written on Evonik Degussa v Commission: Hearing Officer’s Review of Confidentiality Claims on Leniency Information in Public Versions of European Commission Cartel Decision.

ABSTRACT: When deciding on the disclosure or publication of leniency information in public versions of Commission decisions, the hearing officer is obliged to examine any ground based on rules of EU law raised by the company concerned in order to justify the confidentiality of the contested information. Public versions of Commission decisions may not contain quotes from corporate statements of leniency applicants; however, they may contain quotes from other documents submitted in support of a leniency application subject to compliance with professional secrecy and the protection owed to business secrets and other confidential information.
