In the overseas territories, import monopolies not justified by the interest of consumers are prohibited. Such practices eliminate intra-brand competition, artificially partition markets and ultimately contribute to the high cost of living in overseas France. Exclusive import practices are thus in the sights of both the Metropolitan Competition Authority and the New Caledonian Competition Authority ["l'ACNC"]. Article Lp. 421-2-1 of the Commercial Code applicable in New Caledonia ["Commercial Code"] prohibits "agreements or concerted practices having the object or effect of granting exclusive import rights to an enterprise or group of enterprises".
