Competition Council - 2007


 
  • (a)

    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 influences the overall number of infringements and fines.)

    • termination of proceedings after suspension or after voluntary undertaking: applied in all types of cases (except the concentrations)

    • prohibition or imposition of condition: applied in the case of concentrations

    • voluntary acceptance of the reflections of GVH: applied in the case of concentrations and restrictive agreements

  • (b)

    The number of cases (158), defined as a sum of consumer, antitrust and merger cases is slightly higher as the number of decisions (155) as there were three cases which touched upon two different case types at the same time. In case 173/2005 and in 44/2207 both the question of abuse of dominant position and restrictive agreement were raised, and consequently these cases are included both in the table covering dominance and in the table covering agreements. In 94/2006 unfair manipulation of consumers choice and restrictive agreements were also raised as possible abuses, and this case is included both in the table on consumer deception and the table on agreements.
