Resale price maintenance: information for businesses

Advice to help businesses understand more about illegal resale price maintenance (RPM) practices and compliance with competition law.

In May 2016, the CMA imposed fines totalling over £3 million after finding businesses in 2 separate cases had illegally engaged in online RPM agreements with some of their retailers.

Following these cases, we’ve published advice to help suppliers and retailers across all sectors understand the practices that are regarded as RPM, and what to do if they are, or may have been, involved in RPM or similar practices. You can also watch our short film that explains what RPM looks like in practice.
