Collective actions for damages for breach of antitrust rules at EU level

Published: 2 June 2009

Policies & Issues: Legal

Orgalime calls upon the European Commission to avoid adopting in haste measures that will have a major impact on the legislative frameworks of the 27 Member States and could introduce in the EU a litigation culture that is alien to European legal traditions.

The European Engineering Industries have always been in favour of developing and sustaining a competitive environment in the EU and, in general, agree with the Commission on the recognition that the public and private enforcement of antitrust rules is fundamental for such an environment.
