Our task is not to wait for someone to make a mistake and fine the violator, but to prevent the violation,” Maxim Shaskolskiy, the Head of the FAS Russia commented the question on  antimonopoly compliance of the moderator of the plenary session of the Antimonopoly Forum 2021 Marianna Minsker.

Almost a year ago (March 1, 2020), the President of Russia signed Law 33-FZ, which establishes the concept of an antimonopoly compliance system. The goal of compliance is to prevent violations of the requirements of antimonopoly law. The main principle of its implementation is voluntary.

It should be noted that some companies carried out antimonopoly compliance even before the amendments were adopted. It helps to reduce violations of antimonopoly laws by companies.

Currently, the FAS Russia, with the participation of the business community, is preparing clarifications on the organization of the antimonopoly compliance system.

As for the authorities, in compliance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 618, all the federal executive authorities responsible for the implementation of the Roadmap for the development of competition have adopted acts on the organization of antimonopoly compliance.

The relevant acts aimed at the adoption of compliance by the executive authorities of the constituent entities have been adopted in all regions of the Russian Federation.

Thus, one of the key indicators of the National Plan has been achieved, namely, that the authorities have reduced violation of antimonopoly legislation by more than 2 times, from 3.7 thousand violations in 2017 to 1.8 thousand at the end of 2020.

In order to increase the efficiency of the implementation of antimonopoly compliance, the FAS Russia provides information and methodological support to both regions and companies.
