4 Oct 2021
All Committees
Competition policy

The American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham EU) supports the European Commission’s conclusion, following its consultation on policy options, with respect to the vertical block exemption regulation (VBER) and related guidelines (VGL) and concurs that the VBER and VGL contribute significantly to legal certainty and uniform application of EU competition law to vertical agreements. The AmCham EU position paper offers concrete suggestions as the European Commission finalises the new VBER and VGL. These suggestions relate to four main areas: definition of relevant markets and shares and the treatment of information exchanges in the dual distribution context, resale price maintenance (RPM) and hybrid platforms.
