CONFERENCE: FRANCE - COMPETITION AUTHORITY - PROCEDURE - SETTLEMENT - PRIVATE ENFORCEMENT - ASSESSMENT

Which enforcement in Europe? (Rendez-Vous de l’Autorité, The settlement procedure - Paris, October 2nd, 2018)

Three years after the introduction of the settlement procedure into the tools available to the Competition Authority, the Authority was able to witness the success and the very strong development of this procedure, with companies increasingly soliciting its application. Before the adoption of its statement on the calculation of fines, the Competition Authority has sought to bring stakeholders together during an “Authority Meeting” dedicated to the procedure. The conference made it possible to make a first appraisal of the procedure’s implementation, of companies’ perspective and of their suggestions, as well as of the opinions of the Authority and of its jurisdictions. These discussions made it especially possible to enlighten the crossover point between sale and compensation action and they also offered the opportunity for an exchange of views and experiences about various institutional models in force in Europe and the enforcement of negotiated procedures in France and in the other countries of the EU.

L’introduction ayant déjà été faite par la présidente, je vais me contenter de présenter rapidement les membres du panel en commençant par ma droite : Corinne
