Position statements

The position statements reflect the Competition Council's law interpretation with regard to the Competition Act. By publishing the statements the Competition Council intends to give guidelines on the application of the Competition Act for market players, promoting their lawful conduct, whereas the statements are, obviously, not binding upon the civil and administrative courts. Since the statements, by their very nature, are succinctly formulated, their full understanding and correct interpretation may make necessary to consult the reasonings of the Competition Council's resolutions, as they serve as sources for the statements.

The Competition Council revises or amends the statements from time to time as to reflect the changes in the legal thinking and its practice. The GVH publishes the statements on the website. Taking into account the above, a check of the validity of the relevant statements is always recommended.

The position statements are currently only available in Hungarian.
