 Directive 2014/104/EU

I. Description

Excerpt from press release IP/13/525 - 11.06.2013:

The European Commission has adopted a proposal for a Directive on how citizens and companies can claim damages when they are victims of infringements of the EU antitrust rules, such as cartels and abuses of a dominant market position. The proposal is set to remove a number of practical difficulties which victims frequently face when they try to receive a fair compensation for the damage they have suffered.

"Infringements of the antitrust rules cause serious harm to European consumers and businesses" said Commission's Vice-President Joaquín Almunia, responsible for Competition. "We must ensure that all victims of these infringements can obtain redress for the harm they suffered, especially once a competition authority has found and sanctioned such a breach. It is true that the right to claim compensation before national courts exists in all EU Member States but businesses and citizens are not always able to exercise it in practice. Today's proposal seeks to remove these obstacles".
