New Notice on Verticals – Switzerland

leave a comment »

Our good friend David Mamane has informed us that just a few weeks following the reform of the EU rules on verticals,  the Swiss Competition Commission had published its own new notice on vertical agreements. The Notice outlines the basic antitrust rules applicable to the drafting and assessment of distribution agreements that relate to Switzerland. A number of rules have been brought in line with the new EU regime (e.g. the double market share treshold).

David’s law firm has published a short memo which nicely summarizes the content of  the new notice (see attached document below).
