On 30 March 2016, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS Russia) opened a case against “Mondi SLPK” JSC upon elements of violating the antimonopoly law.

FAS suspects that “Mondi SLPK” JSC Аviolated Clause 1 Part 1 Article 10 of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition”, in particular, fixing monopolistically high price for offset paper.

FAS established that in 2015 the costs of offset paper increased for domestic consumers by around 50%. It did not match the change in the costs required for the goods production and sale.

“FAS continue watching the situation on the markets of cellulose-and-paper industry in Russia. A recently observed increase of prices for offset paper has elements of violating the antimonopoly law”, pointed out the Head of FAS Department for Industry Control, Nelli Galimkhanova. “Upon considering all case circumstances and the arguments given by the respondent, the FAS Commission shall make a decision”.

In December 2014, the regulator initiated inspections of the largest manufactures on the cellulose-and-paper industry to verify whether their prices comply with the antimonopoly law. Currently, FAS monitors the costs of cellulose and other types of paper on a quarterly basis.
