kzk-ekofOn April 24, 2018, the Commission for Protection of Competition conducted dawn raids on business premises of companies “Keprom d.o.o.” and “Yuglob d.o.o.” from Belgrade. Dawn raids, as a special measure of inquiry, are conducted at three locations in Belgrade, where the Commission collected evidence of the importance for further conduct.

The Commission reasonably assumed that said companies, as big importers and distributors of baby and infant products, have concluded restrictive agreements by way of which have set the resale price of goods, and in that manner have infringed the competition rules stipulated in Article 10 of the Law on Protection of Competition.

Noting the exceptional significance of this market for consumers, but also for the society as a whole, the Commission will continue to investigate anti-competitive behaviors and competition compliance of undertakings in the coming period as well, particularly in terms of price policy.

In addition to the competition infringement proceeding, the Commission also instituted a comprehensive sector inquiry into the baby and infant product market.
