International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) have offered commitments to resolve a Commission investigation into claims the company blocked competition from rival providers of maintenance services for mainframe computers by imposing unreasonable conditions for the supply of certain spare parts and technical information, and thereby abused a dominant position contrary to Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The Commission opened the investigations into IBM in 2010.  

The commitments offered by IBM involve measures that seek to ensure third-party providers of mainframe maintenance services receive certain spare parts and technical information under reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms.  

Interested parties have been invited to comment on the commitments within one month.
