Case reference: CE/9882-16
|July 2016||Decision taken to proceed with the investigation (further update by the end of October 2016)|
|March 2016 to July 2016 (estimate)||Initial investigation: information gathering, including the issuance of formal or informal information requests and parties’ responses; potential state of play meetings with parties|
|30 March 2016||Investigation opened|
- The investigation concerns suspected infringements of Chapter I of the Competition Act 1998 and/or Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
- The CMA has not reached a view as to whether there is sufficient evidence of an infringement of competition law for it to issue a statement of objections to the party/parties under investigation. Not all cases result in the CMA issuing a statement of objections. As a result, it would not be appropriate to include any further estimates of the timing of any later investigative steps at this stage.
- Changes to the timing of original entries in the case timetable will be made where the estimated timing changes.
