1. Januar 2007

The new Austrian Cartel Act came into force on 1 January 2006. Besides the harmonisation of antitrust provisions with corresponding EU legislation and slight amendments with regard to Austrian merger control, the new law also provided for the introduction of a domestic leniency programme. Even tough it seemed to be modelled after the Commission´s Leniency Notice of 2002, important procedural and substantive law issues have been regulated in a different way by the Cartel Act.
