Background on the topic

This Standard addresses the topic of anti-competitive behavior, including anti-trust and monopoly practices. Anti-competitive behavior refers to actions of an organization or its employees that can result in collusion with potential competitors, with the purpose of limiting the effects of market competition. This can include fixing prices or coordinating bids, creating market or output restrictions, imposing geographic quotas, and allocating customers, suppliers, geographic areas, or product lines. Anti-trust and monopoly practices are actions of an organization that can result in collusion to erect barriers for entry into the sector or to otherwise prevent competition. This can include unfair business practices, abuse of market position, cartels, anti-competitive mergers, and price-fixing. These concepts are covered in key instruments of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development: see the Bibliography.
