In the second quarter of 2018, the Serbian NCA initiated a number of antitrust investigations and heavily relied on dawn raids as an investigative tool in these investigations.
The Serbian NCA raided 5 different locations and opened investigative proceedings against 7 undertakings that allegedly colluded when participating in public procurement proceedings of the City of Niš.
On 24 April 2018, the Serbian NCA initiated an investigation and carried out dawn raids against two importers of baby and infant products. The dawn raids were carried out at 3 different locations in Belgrade. At this stage, the investigation seems to focus on resale price maintenance clauses in agreements entered into by the importers with retailers.
