AmCham Hungary cordially invites you to its next Mini Morning Seminar with
Competition law update in Hungary in 2017
Enforcement trends, new merger control rules and antitrust damages
Competition law influences everyday business, because of the array of practices prohibited and the substantial sanctions applicable. Significant changes happened to the rules and practice of competition law in the last couple of months. The enforcement priorities of competition authorities evolved and trends can be outlined on which markets and which type of conduct competition authorities focus. Due to the comprehensive amendment of Hungarian competition law rules, there is a new merger control regime in place, which simplifies the proceedings on the one hand, but widens the possibilities of the competition authority to investigate and intervene on the other hand. Also, as a result of the implementation of the respective EU directive, new rules are in place facilitating the actions of people suffering damages due to a competition law infringement.
