Unilateral conduct

Unilateral conduct by non-dominant firms

Are there any rules applying to the unilateral conduct of non-dominant firms?

Article 4 of the Competition Law prohibits practices and arrangements between competitors if their intention or effect is anticompetitive. The existence of a dominant position is not required.

There is potential for abusive conduct, if it occurs in the context of a dealing with a Saudi government entity, to give rise to breaches of the Saudi government’s Tenders and Procurements Law regime as well as the procurements regimes of particular Saudi government-owned entities.
