- The European Commission has re-adopted two amending decisions on the heat stabilisers cartel. In 2009, the Commission fined ten producers of heat stabilisers €173 million for fixing prices, sharing customers, allocating markets and exchanging sensitive commercial information. As a result of certain errors, the Commission adopted amending decisions in 2010. In July 2015, the General Court annulled the amending decisions, on the basis that certain parties were unable to submit their views before the Commission adopted the decisions. The Commission considers that it has now given all companies the opportunity to present their views and has therefore re-adopted the 2010 amending decisions. Click here.

The General Court has upheld the Commission’s finding that the measures adopted by GCB had the effect of restricting competition. The ECJ had held that the General Court’s original judgment had wrongly concluded that the measures adopted by GCB had the object of restricting competition. Click here.
