CCPC opens consultation on revision of its verticals declaration

January 30, 2023

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) has opened a public consultation on proposed revisions to its declaration in respect of vertical agreements and concerted practices (the Declaration).

The current CCPC declaration closely resembles the European Commission’s Vertical Block Exemption Regulation (VBER) which was revised in June 2022. The CCPC is now in the process of updating its declaration to reflect changes implemented by the Commission to the VBER.

The consultation process is an opportunity for stakeholders to provide feedback and commentary on the proposed updates to the Declaration and Notice respectively. Stakeholder submissions are a vital source of information and views, helping to inform the CCPC’s revision of this important instrument.

The consultation begins today, Monday, 30 January 2023 and will finish on Friday, 10 February 2023.
