NEW SETS OF DATA ON FAS WEB-SITE
After the President of Russia approved the National Competition Development Plan and held the State Council on competition, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS Russia) publishes the Passports for data sets on the “Order of the President of the Russian Federation “On the main directions of the state policy towards developing competition” and the “List of orders issued State Council on competition”.
The data sets contain information about executing and implementing the National Competition Development Plan and the orders issued upon the State Council.
FAS also added a data set on the “List of educational facilities that offer training in the areas of FAS activities”. The educational facilities are formed to conduct research and academic work in competition law. The main purposes include teaching history and the modern state of the antimonopoly law to students, stimulating research and discussions in the academic environment about different aspects of competition law and informing the most interested students in FAS work with an intention of finding employment in the antimonopoly body.
The current data sets of the Federal Antimonopoly Service can be found here: http://fas.gov.ru/opendata/
