kzk-ekofThe Commission for Protection of Competition instituted ex officio proceeding for the investigation of competition infringement against GR SPORT DOO from Sremska Mitrovica and POLANIK Sp.zo from Piotrków Trybunalski, Poland, for establishing the existence of restrictive agreement within the meaning of Article 10 of the Law on Protection of Competition.

Company GR Sport has been an exclusive distributor of company Polanik continuously since 2005 until the initiation of proceeding. By way of the recently conducted inquiry into the athletic equipment and sports props wholesale market, implemented by the Commission, it is established that the market share of GR Sport on the wholesale market of athletic equipment (clothing and footwear excluded), might exceed 25%.

Seeing that the restrictive agreement was not notified to the Commission with a request for the exemption pursuant to the legislative acts and corresponding regulations, i.e. that this restrictive agreement was not exempt, the Commission reasonably assumed the existence of competition infringement that as its purpose or effect has or may have a significant restriction, distortion or prevention of competition.

All persons in possession of data, documents or other relevant information that could contribute to the fact-finding in this proceeding are called upon to submit the said to the Commission for Protection of Competition to the address 25 Savska St., Belgrade.
