When does industry benchmarking become collusion?


From: Wednesday March 25, 2020, 12:00 pm

To: Wednesday March 25, 2020, 1:30 pm

Unfortunately with the risk of Covid 19 and universities cancelling events on campuses we are not going ahead with the event as planned and will reschedule for later in the year.

The presentation will analyse when industry benchmarking and other information sharing agreements become collusion and lessen competition in a substantial way.

It will highlight practices which are of concern to competition agencies such as ACCC (Australia), FTC/DOJ (US) and EC (Europe). Past court cases and current competition guidelines will be discussed.

The event is at no cost but prior registration, which closes 20 March, is essential.
