The Finnish Market Court imposes a fine for resale price maintenance for the first time in a decade

The Finnish Market Court has imposed its first fine for resale price maintenance for over a decade. The judgment follows a European trend of competition authorities pursuing and fining resale price maintenance. Moreover, the judgment signals the Market Court’s strict approach to such conduct: if an agreement constituting resale price maintenance is discovered, it is considered a violation of the competition rules in itself and will most likely attract a fine. Partners in distribution relationships should make sure that their cooperation does not involve elements that could constitute agreements on minimum resale prices.

The calm before the storm? – Finnish merger control enforcement in 2021

D&I’s annual merger control report highlights the most recent trends and developments in Finnish merger control enforcement. In many ways, the year 2021 was not as exceptional as the preceding few years of Finnish merger control enforcement. For example, there were no proposals by the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority (the “FCCA”) to prohibit a concentration (there was one in 2019 and one in 2020). Also, the FCCA did not declare a single notification incomplete or use ‘stop-the-clocks’. However, this does not mean that the Finnish merger control enforcement would have eased off. On the contrary, for example, the FCCA started to require an upfront buyer in divestment remedies and made significant new legislative proposals to tighten the merger control rules, which might mean that the year 2021 was merely a calm before the storm.
