CONSULTATIONS: Revision of the EU competition rules on horizontal agreements
(Source: European Commission)
The aim of the initiative is to revise the exemption rules on R&D and specialisation agreements and the accompanying guidelines. The revision aims to ensure that companies have clear guidance on what horizontal cooperation agreements they can conclude without risk of infringing competition law. It also aims at simplifying administrative supervision of horizontal cooperation agreements by the Commission, national competition authorities and national courts.
