Leniency Programme

 
The Act on Protection of Competition allows the Office not to impose a fine or to reduce the fine to the undertaking for a participation in a cartel, which would otherwise be imposed for this illegal conduct. It is possible not to impose a fine only to one, namely the first undertaking, which has provided the Office with the decisive evidence to prove a cartel agreement or was the first to provide, on its own initiative, information and evidence being decisive to conduct a dawn raid, by which decisive evidence to prove a cartel agreement should be obtained. In case the cartel participants provide the Office with significant evidence which is not sufficient to prove a cartel agreement by itself, but in connection with information already available to the Office, it could enable the Office to prove it, it is possible to reduce the fine up to 50 % of the fine amount which would be otherwise imposed.

More information on conditions of non-imposing or remitting the fine is available in the Decree on leniency programme.
