Artem Molchanov: in 2016 60 complaints against acts issued by regional antimonopoly bodies went through in-house appeal
Breached enforcement uniformity of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition” is the only grounds for reviewing a decision of a regional FAS Office
Moscow OFAS brought together the antimonopoly bodies of the Central Federal District to discuss unified enforcement practice
On 20 - 21 March 2017, there was a workshop / conference of FAS regional bodies in the Central Federal District
Igor Artemiev: the basic agenda of the work of the FAS Russia is built up on the National Competition Development Plan and a draft tariff law
The documents are under comprehensive discussion with the society and business community
FAS summed up the results of enforcement of the “forth antimonopoly package”
It came into force on 2016 and was designed to reduce administrative burden upon business
Igor Artemiev proposes to reject the “third is a crowd” principle in most cases of medicinal drug purchases and move to preferences
The “third is a crowd” rule excludes possibility of foreign companies participating in auctions for procurement of drugs and medical products if two Russian companies are already participating in such tenders.
