Guidance (and some other stuff)

leave a comment »


The OFT keeps doing interesting stuff. They have now published two concise and useful guidance documents aimed at ensuring compliance by small and medium companies as well as by company directors.  (The Spanish CNC also did a good job in releasing guidance for associations not so long ago).

Btw, for those of you who have not yet heard about it, one of the members of the OFT´s Board, Philip Marsden, is the new competition law Professor at the College of Europe, where he´ll be replacing Richard Whish.


-Rumour has it that  next week the Commission will finally announce its long-awaited decision in the air cargo cartel. You can expect truly huge fines.

-Also, yesterday I attended part of the sessions of the FIDE Congress in Madrid, and it was really a privilege  to see such an unusual concentration of great legal minds.  I could only attend the discussion on competition issues (excellentely chaired by Judge Lenaerts), but I hear that all three panels were of great interest.
