Abstract [en]

This contribution focuses on the so-called passing-on problem in actions for repayment of charges levied by Member States in breach of EU law. ‘Passing-on’ occurs when the economic burden of a charge levied from a business is passed on to burden that business’s customers, and possibly even further down the supply chain. The main issues at stake in the passing-on problem whether actual or possible passing-on should be relevant to the amount repayable, and whether (and, if so, against whom) downstream claimants should be able to bring an action in respect of an economic burden passed on to them. The authors demonstrate that, in the EU and EEA, the passing-on problem is a multi-million euro problem which remains governed by diverging national laws, albeit subject to a number of restrictions developed by the Court of Justice in the absence of EU harmonization. With a view to safeguarding legal certainty, the effective protection of EU law rights, and the elimination of random discrepancies among national rules that are crucial to the proper functioning of the internal market, the authors call for EU harmonization of the legal issues triggered by passing-on. To that end, the authors present two alternative models for harmonization.

Abstract [en]

“Passing-on” occurs when harm or loss incurred by a business is passed on to burden that business’s customers, ie the next level of the supply chain. This book offers analyses of various aspects of passing-on in EU law damages and restitution. Three main legal issues triggered by passing-on are identified: (1) Will downstream claimants have access to bring an action for damages or restitution before the competent court? (2) Will downstream claimants be able to demonstrate sufficient proximity to the original harmful act or unjustified transaction? (3) Will a possibility for claimants to pass on the harm or loss be relevant to the estimation of the award? These issues are assessed within the contexts of actions for damages and restitution against the EU, a Member State, and private individuals. Reasoned suggestions for consistent approaches to passing-on are offered both in the course of discussions and in the final conclusions.

Abstract [en]

In this article, it is discussed under what circumstances the nullity effect provided for in EU competition law could give rise to an action for restitution for victims of a competition law infringement, and to what extent such restitutionary actions could contribute to the effective enforcement of competition law.

Abstract [en]

This long working paper (EUI interest study) explores the differences between national legal systems and assesses whether they are EU law compliant when it comes to the calculation of interest on damages resulting from antitrust infringements. The first chapter of the working paper addresses three issues: the principles that emerge from the case law of the CJEU when assessing the compliance of national rules in damages actions; the principles that emerge from EU legislation and the case law of the CJEU when considering the notion of interest payments; an assessment, based on the EU law system, of thirteen member state approaches to interest. The subsequent chapters are national reports which form the basis for the assessment to be found in chapter 1. We note that many legal systems require some reconsideration of the national approach to interest to ensure that claimants are afforded full compensation. This study comes at a time when the 28 EU member States are in the process of implementing Directive 2014/104/EU, without however being very specific on the calculation of interest. In presenting the specific features of thirteen national regimes, this working document provides guidance to all interested parties on the scope of interest as fundamental part of the EU right to full compensation. It might prove especially useful to judges in cases that call for the application of foreign laws to damages claims. This EUI interest study has been initiated and supported by CDC Cartel Damage Claims Consulting SCRL, Brussels with the aim to extend the study to the legal systems of all other EU Member States. It seeks to raise awareness of the substantial differences and potentially significant consequences thereof for the right to full compensation of damages following infringements of competition law.

Abstract [en]

This volume in the Swedish Studies in European Law series, produced by the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies, heralds the new harmonized regime of private enforcement of EU competition law. In 2013, the Commission issued a communication and practical guide to the quantification of harm in antitrust litigation, and a recommendation on collective redress. In 2014, the long-awaited Directive on actions for damages for infringements of EU competition law was finally adopted. In 2015, the Commission is expected to issue guidelines on the passing-on of overcharges. This book examines these recent developments and offers the perspectives of judges, officials, practitioners and academia.

 

With a preface by Judge Carl Wetter of the General Court, the book explores five different themes. In section one the main policy issues and challenges are presented. In section two  the new regime is placed in the bigger picture of recent EU law developments. In section three the nexus between private enforcement and transparency is investigated. A comparative perspective is offered in section four by looking into private enforcement in five Member State jurisdictions. Finally, issues relating to causation, harm and indirect purchasers are explored in section five.

Abstract [en]

This article aims to report and to analyse the approach chosen in the upcoming directive on damages for a breach of competition law, and accompanying instruments, to the position of indirect purchasers. It is argued that the directive should have included a main rule of access to court for indirect purchasers, and it is suggested that it could have included a specific rebuttable presumption for causation in order to facilitate actions by indirect purchasers. It is explained that the new regime focuses on compensatory heads of damages, ruling out punitive as well as restitutionary damages. With regard to passing-on, it is noticed that the availability of a defence of passing-on is explicitly endorsed in Article 13, and that indirect purchasers are provided with some latitude in establishing passing-on to them in Article 14. Overall, it is concluded that the directive leaves many open ends that promise a future of legal development in private enforcement of competition law.
