Resale Price Maintenance (ILO-Artikel)

(ILO – International Law Office | 21.8.2014 | Dieter Hauck & Esther Sowka-Hold)

In the course of its investigations in the past few years, the Federal Competition Authority (FCA) reported findings of prohibited agreements between suppliers and their respective distributors, primarily in the field of consumer prices. In the wake of these findings, following several drafts and discussions, on July 31 2014 the FCA published its final statement on its legal view on vertical restrictions, in particular regarding resale price maintenance.
