The EU Cartel Settlement Procedure: Latest Developments

ABSTRACT: In the period under review in the present article (August 2015–December 2016), three further decisions were adopted by the European Commission under the settlement procedure. The adoption of the Alternators and StartersTrucks and Rechargeable batteries decisions have thus brought the total cases treated under the EU Cartel Settlement procedure to 22 (an overview of these cases can be found in Section III of the present article). While the Alternators and Starters case and the Rechargeable Batteries case were ‘classical’ full settlements, the Trucks case presents the particularity of being not only hybrid (as one party opted out of the settlement process), but also being concluded after the issuance of a statement of objections.
