Russia: Antitrust Compliance and Amendments to Antitrust Regulation
Globally more and more attention is being paid to antitrust compliance which is generally understood to mean that a company complies with the norms of antitrust legislation in the countries where it conducts business.
Antitrust compliance regulations have currently been adopted in the European Union, the EAEU, the United States, and many other developed countries. In Russia, regulations that directly regulate antitrust compliance came into force in 2020.
It is essential that due attention be paid to this area not only for the current law and the available clarifications and recommendations of the antitrust service, but, first and foremost, in connection with the possible employment of antitrust compliance systems to identify violations of antitrust legislation, and the possible mitigation of and even complete release from liability for certain antitrust violations.
