Serbia’s national competition authority (NCA) has announced it has issued an infringement decision for bid rigging – based on a leniency application. The bid rigging concerned the supply of Konica Minolta office equipment in the public procurement procedure in Serbia.
Serbia still has a system of individual exemption of restrictive agreements based on prior notification to the national competition authority (NCA). What kind of agreements did the NCA exempt during 2018?
The Serbian Competition Commission has recently published its annual report for 2016. Among the parts of the report catching the eye is the Commission’s announcement that during this year it plans to draft four new block exemption regulations for restrictive agreements. Once the drafting is completed, the Commission would submit the regulations to the Government for adoption.
