Competition Law: The European Commission provides guidance on its leniency policy and practice


The European Commission issued guidelines in question and answer format at the end of October 2022, to which we refer in this Legal Briefing

Since 1996, the European Commission has been implementing the leniency programme. This programme offers companies that have participated or are participating in a cartel the opportunity to bring the existence of such a cartel to the attention of the Commission and to cooperate with the investigations in exchange for the possibility of avoiding the imposition of a penalty or reducing the amount of the penalty.
