Footnotes
  • Depending on the type of the case, GVH (Hungarian competition authority) interventions might result in different types of decisions:
    - establishment of the infringement: applied in all types of cases (However the category of `failure to notify the concentration` is not included although these are also infringements of the Competition Act. This influence the overall number of infringements and fines.)
    - termination of proceedings after suspension: applied in all types of cases (except the concentrations)
    - refusal of the exemption: applied in the case of restrictive agreements
    - prohibited concentrations (refused notifications): applied in the case of concentrations and restrictive agreements
    - imposition of condition: applied in the case of restrictive agreements and concentrations
    - voluntary acceptance of the reflections of GVH: applied in the case of concentrations and restrictive agreements
