    Restrictive agreements
    The Commission has sent a Statement of Objections to six undertakings and a professional association concerning restrictive agreements on prices for starter batteries sold to car manufacturers in the EEA.
    EU Commission, 30 November 2023, IP/23/6146

    LThe very rare practice of identical prices by two real estate agencies and their geographical proximity, which may lead to common market characteristics, are insufficient elements to characterize a restrictive agreement, which cannot be derived from the mere formation of an EIG whose bylaws give no indication that it includes price-fixing in the establishment of common rules for the practice of the profession, and any anticompetitive effect.
    CA Paris, 29 November 2023, No 22/03287
