Competition Council - 2008


 
  • (a)

    In one of the cases, which concerned two different case-types at the same time, only one decision was made. In the case Vj-142/2007 the GVH initiated a proceeding for an alleged restrictive agreement and failure to make a notification; and consequently these cases are both included in the table covering agreements and concentrations. As a result the number of decisions made pursuant to the Competition Act is 115, and not the simple amount of case types, which would give 116.

  • (b)

    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 (The category of -failure to make a notification- is not included. Although this is also considered an infringement, it is not a GVH intervention in this context. This fact influences the overall number of infringements and the amount of fines imposed);

    • termination of proceedings after commitment decisions: applied in all case types (except for the concentrations);

    • refusal of authorisation or imposition of conditions: applied in the case of concentrations;

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

  • (c)

    The resolution made and the fine imposed on Magyar Hipermarket Kereskedelmi Kft. (Cora) in the case Vj-64/2007 for failure to comply with the commitments is neither included in the table for decisions terminating the cases nor in the column concerning the amount of the fines imposed.
