Legal nature of price signalling in the European competition law



Within last few years, price signalling as a form of information exchange used for anticompetitive actions has gained importance in the EU Competition Law. However, there are no many cases on this area and legal nature of the price signalling as method use for forming a concerted practice remains unclear. This paper tries to review existing European regulation and case law to find answer to the question of what is the legal nature of price signalling as an anti-competitive act?

And, how is it treated under European Competition Law? In order to achieve its objectives, paper is divided into four main parts. After the introduction, second part will scrutinized the notion of information exchange and its possible anti-competitive nature under the European Law. Third part will review relevant European case law to price signalling and its role in infringing competition law. Finally, fourth part will provide conclusive remarks.
