Competition Council to apply the first fines for noncompliance

In mid-January, Romania's Competition Council (CC) fined both Avenir Telecom and Euronet Services, as well as the Professional Football League (LPF) with fines totalling 705,079 RON (about 156,340 Euro) because they failed to comply to the commitments they had made during the investigations in which they had been involved

"It′s the first time we impose fines for noncompliance," said CC's president Bogdan Chiritoiu in a press release. "The purpose of completing an investigation by accepting commitments is to restore the competition quickly. Formulation of commitments is an initiative of the companies involved and any subsequent amendment affecting them or the way they are applied is made only following a decision by the competition authority." The CC completed, in 2012, two investigations regarding possible anticompetitive agreements between Orange, Vodafone and Cosmote and their dealer network for mobile prepaid products (around 150), after the companies involved had made a number of commitments to end contracts that contain provisions which would stimulate competition.
The companies have implemented the commitments they have taken and studies made in the monitoring process showed that, compared to 2012, last year users were very satisfied with prepaid products, including price. However, there were two exceptions: Avenir Telecom and Euronet Services, who have not changed their contracts with their sub-distributors of prepaid products to within the maximum provided. Therefore, they were fined with 298,905 RON and 220,510 RON. Regarding the LPF, it has been sanctioned with 185,664 RON for failing to comply with the commitments it has undertaken in terms of broadcast rights of football matches in competitive seasons 2011-2012, 2012-2013, and 2013-2014. The CC found that the LPF has violated commitments by not selling the TV rights associated with packages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 through an open, transparent and non-discriminatory tender, but as a single package of rights.
