Commercial vehicle manufacturers: criminal cartel investigation

Office of Fair Trading (OFT) closed criminal cartel case.

The OFT commenced a criminal cartel investigation under the Enterprise Act 2002 into suspected cartel activity in the UK involving commercial vehicle manufacturers in September 2010. Following a thorough investigation it has been determined that there is insufficient evidence for any individual to be charged with the cartel offence. Accordingly, that case has been closed.

The OFT’s Competition Act investigation into commercial vehicle manufacturers was also closed.
