Competition Law Compliance Course

Anti-competitive agreements are rarely formalised. The parties often don't even meet or communicate directly with one other.

But any concerted action, exchange of information or 'meeting of minds' may be illegal collusion.

Violation of competition law is a serious crime which has led to big fines for companies and long prison sentences!

Our Competition Law Compliance Course will help your employees understand anti-competitive practices, how to avoid them and why to speak up if they see anti-competitive behaviour.
