Denmark: ”Variant A/S, Denmark, pays fine in settlement for resale price maintenance”
07. maj 2015
On April 29, 2015, Variant A/S, a Danish producer of trailers, entered into a settlement with the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority for infringing section 6 of the Danish Competition Act by imposing resale price maintenance. Accordingly Variant A/S accepted to pay a fine of DKK 400,000 (€ 53,600).
For a period of two months, an employee at Variant A/S entered into an-ticompetitive agreements with one of the company’s dealers about the prices that the dealer communicated to consumers.
The size of the fine reflects, among other things, that Variant A/S has cooperated with the authorities and that it was a single infringement which took place for a short period.
The Danish Competition and Consumer Authority took up the case on the basis of a tip from a dealer.
