Denmark: ”Distributor of hair products pays fine in settlement for resale price maintenance”
18. marts 2014
On November 29, 2013, the company Coss (a Danish distributor of hair products) entered into a settlement with the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority and accepted to pay a fine of DKK 100.000 (€ 13,400).
The infringement concerned the imposing of resale price maintenance to some of the company’s dealers for a period of two months in 2013.
In fixing the fine of DKK 100.000 the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority took into account the size of the company’s turnover and the duration of the infringement.
The Danish Competition and Consumer Authority emphasized that it was a mitigating circumstance that the company cooperated with the competition authority during the casework. The Authority also took into account that the infringement only concerned one single dealer and that the infringement ended immediately after the Authority contacted the company about the case.
