The New EC Guidelines on Horizontal Co-operation Agreements

  • Grillo Michele

Il contributo riassume i criteri generali e specifici che informano le nuove Linee Guida della Commissione sugli accordi di cooperazione orizzontale e ne discute i principali elementi di novità. Le Linee Guida aggiornano i criteri di valutazione relativi ai principali tipi di accordi di cooperazione orizzontale (gli accordi di produzione e specializzazione; gli accordi di acquisto; gli accordi di commercializzazione; gli accordi di ricerca e sviluppo; gli accordi di standardizzazione) e pongono in premessa una sezione interamente nuova sugli scambi di informazione. I principali elementi di novità riguardano: (i) l'apertura a un'analisi degli effetti anche ai fini della valutazione di comportamenti restrittivi per l'oggetto; (ii) la necessità di un'analisi strutturalistica sia ex ante sia ex post quando gli accordi, come nel caso degli scambi di informazione, modificano il contesto concorrenziale e gli incentivi delle imprese e, per tale via, incidono sulle modalità con cui la struttura del mercato impatta sul comportamento delle imprese.
