Anti-competitive agreements are rarely formalised. Parties often don't even meet or communicate directly with one other. However, any concerted action, exchange of information or 'meeting of minds' may be illegal collusion.
UK and EU competition laws prohibit anti-competitive agreements and the abuse of dominant market position. Violating competition law is a serious crime that has led to big fines for companies and long prison sentences!
