    Essentials: Competition Law

The competition law makes it illegal (i) for companies to enter into horizontal agreements (between competitors) and vertical agreements (along the supply chain) that restrict competition in the market, and (ii) for dominant companies to abuse their market power. Any violation of these laws can result in criminal prosecution and extremely heavy fines.

This course is designed to educate your employees about various anti-competitive practices, including cartels, informal collusion, careless breaches, tying and bundling, and other restrictive practices, and the steps they must take to avoid falling foul of the competition law.

  • Recognise the vertical agreement block exemptions
