The Anti-monopoly Committee has strengthened its cooperation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs in cartel investigations. The agencies recently signed an agreement on their collaboration and their respective powers. The rules will help to enhance ongoing consultations and the exchange of information during investigations into anticompetitive behaviour. Among other things, they provide for the committee to engage the ministry to conduct inspections, thereby ensuring that access to the premises of undertakings that are suspected of cartel involvement is effected correctly.
