Court confirmed FAS decision on a multimillion fine case against “Vodocanal” Municipal Unitary Enterprise of Yekaterinburg

12-09-2017 | 11:20

Earlier, the antimonopoly body fined the enterprise over 74 million RUB

Sverdlovsk OFAS found that “Vodocanal” violated Clause 3 Part 1 Article 10 of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition”. Draft contracts (particularly, for “Volgogradskoe-202” Housing Association) on cold water supply and drainage with executors of utility services included a condition on the boundaries of operational liability. These conditions are contrary to Clause 8 of the Rules for common property maintenance in apartment houses (approved by No.491 Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 13.08.2006) and are disadvantageous for executors of utility services. The antimonopoly body issued a warning that “Vodocanal” failed to execute.

Sverdlovsk OFAS found that enterprise abused its dominant position on the market and imposed an administrative fine for over 74 million RUB.

“Vodocanal” appealed the determination of the antimonopoly body at Sverdlovsk Regional Arbitration Court. The Court studies the case materials and dismissed the claim. The fine sum remains unchanged.
