CARTEL SUPPLIED EQUIPMENT TO A MILITRY UNIT

29-12-2017 | 09:00

FAS found that “Trademax Group” Ltd and “Ruspromtrading” Ltd. violated Clause 2 Part 1 Article 11 of No.135-FZ Federal Law “On Protection of Competition” of 26.07.20062 Part 1 Article 11 of No.135-FZ Federal Law “On Protection of Competition” of 26.07.2006.

 

FAS Commission established that bidders at an auction for supplies of industrial equipment for the needs of a military unit entered in an anticompetitive agreement for the purposes of maintaining the auction price.

 

“Ruspromtrading” Ltd. filed only one offer on the contact price, reducing the price by 0.5% of the initial (maximum) contract price and later on refused to compete, thus, ensuring the victory of “Trademax Group” Ltd.

 

Actions undertaken by the companies led to a minimum reduction of the contract price from the level of the Maximum Starting Contract Price (by 1%): maintaining the maximum profitable price for the members of the ant cartel agreements.

 

In the course of the investigation, one cartel member was renamed from “Trademax Group” Ltd. to “Accord” Ltd.

 

“Such methods of avoiding responsibility are not efficient because changing the name of a legal entity does not influence the scope of punishment for participating in a cartel”, said Head of FAS Department for Control over public defence procurement, Konstantin Alyoshin.
