  • Recent Trends in Antitrust Law Enforcement - In 2021, the Commission on Protection of the Competition (the “CPC”) with two separate decisions sanctioned two suppliers of children’s products and clothes for establishing and maintaining a retail price fixing mechanisms. The common between these two decisions is that the authority built its conclusions mainly on the unilateral conduct of the suppliers and did not engage in extensive analysis whether the retailers adhered and even whether they were duly informed that such mechanism existed, and they should follow it. Although similar approach is not unknown even for the European Commission, it seems that the CPC has made one more step and based its conclusions predominantly on an unilateral conduct without paying too much attention to the bilateral or the multilateral character of the infringement under article 15 of the Protection of the Competition Act (the Bulgarian version of Art 101 of the TFEU). (Vladislav Antonov, Senior Associate, DGKV)
