The Commission for Protection of Competition has Initiated Antitrust Proceedings on the Car Sales Market in the Republic of Serbia

13.01.2021.

On 2 December 2020, the Commission has passed the Conclusion by which it has initiated ex officio proceedings against market participants Porsche SCG d.o.o. Beograd, Autokomerc  d.o.o. Beograd, Autocentar Manik – ACM Preljina, and Bros Auto d.o.o. Niš, in order to investigate the existence of restrictive agreements which limit the competition on the car sales market in the Republic of Serbia.

Namely, the Commission has determined that the agreements for products/vehicles of the  „Audi“ brand contain the provision which enables the importer to set resale prices of motor vehicles, and which provision would represent the competition infringement under the Article 10 of the Law on Protection of Competition,  i.e. the existence of restrictive agreements. The aforementioned Conclusion states that „such provisions may distort and even eliminate the price competition in retail, i.e. the price competition which could have existed between the car dealers of this brand if they have been able to set resale prices independently“.
