Guidance Notes and Best Practice Guides

OFT: The OFT has launched new guidance and a film including a dramatised dawn raid, to help businesses comply with competition law. This coincides with the publication of research showing business awareness of competition law has grown but has further to go.
 
The first document, How Your Business Can Achieve Compliance, is aimed at businesses & their advisors, and sets out the OFT's recommended risk-based, 4-step approach to creating a culture of competition law compliance.
 
Reflecting the crucial role directors play in compliance the second document, Company Directors and Competition Law, explains the level of competition law understanding expected from directors.  It outlines steps they should take to prevent, detect and stop infringements of competition law.
