26 March 2018 Sydney, Australia
The OECD is organising a one-day workshop in Sydney on 26 March 2018 to present the results of an OECD review of the Australian Pecuniary Penalties for Competition Law Infringements.
Australia’s system for imposing sanctions for breaches of competition law is capable of delivering substantial and deterrent sanctions for such breaches. In recent years, important cases have increasingly been brought before the courts for decisions about sanctions. Building on prior OECD work comparing sanctions regimes for competition law regimes, Australia has asked the OECD to review its pecuniary sanctions regime and compare it with the practices of a number of representative OECD jurisdictions. The resulting report will be presented during a workshop and discussed amongst Australian and international experts from a variety of backgrounds.
In addition to the presentation of the forthcoming report on Australian Pecuniary Penalties for Competition Law Infringements, the programme includes a number of panels where the views of invited academics, legal profession practicionners, judges and the business and consumers society from Australia and abroad will be discussed.
The workshop will feature Australian and international experts and practitionners including:
