|January 2012|| ENFORCEMENT OF COMPETITION ACT 2010 |
The Malaysian Competition Act 2010 ("the Competition Act") comes into force on 1 January 2012 prohibits anti-competitive activities, such as horizontal and vertical anti-competitive agreements and abuses of dominance.
Generally, price-fixing agreements, marking sharing agreements and bid-rigging agreements and other collusive 'cartel’ (i.e. pakat in Bahasa Malaysia) agreements are considered to be anti-competitive.
The regulator of the Competition Act, the Malaysia Competition Committee ("MyCC") has extensive enforcement powers of investigation and enforcement and to issue directions and make decisions.
The proposed guidelines on the application on the Competition Act have already been posted on the website of MyCC. These guidelines are not yet definitive as they are still subject to a public consultation process.
In anticipation of the enforcement of the Competition Act, we have since year 2011 developed and implemented a Competition Compliance Programme for our corporate clients to ensure that the position of our clients is protected as regards to the coming into force of the Competition Act.
For further insight on the application of the provisions of the Competition Act to your business activities, please read the FAQs or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03 -2171 1484 and speak to Brenda Yong.
