Complying with competition law?

It also prohibits abuses of dominant market positions.  It catches all sorts of activities such as market sharing, price fixing, cartels, bid-rigging and even the sharing of information. Breach competition law and your business could be fined up to 10% of its worldwide turnover for each year of infringement. Worse still, participating directors and employees can face criminal prosecution which can ultimately lead to imprisonment if found guilty.
