Here you can find information on the Competition Act and how to comply with the law. You can also find out what constitutes a cartel and how a business could be granted immunity from fines and individuals avoid prosecution (through the OFT's leniency programme) if they inform the OFT of their involvement in anti-competitive activity.
This section also provides information about Competition Act related investigations, decisions, consultations and case closure summaries (where cases are in the public domain).
The OFT has published guidance on competition law compliance. This includes specific advice for directors, general guidance for all businesses, a quick guide to competition law compliance and a short film.
There are severe penalties for individuals and businesses that engage in cartels - and every incentive for those individuals and businesses to stop such practices and tell the OFT about the cartel.
The OFT offers financial rewards of up to £100,000 (in exceptional circumstances) for information about cartel activity. You will find it useful to read the guidance set out here.
The Short-form Opinion provides guidance to businesses and their advisers on the application of competition law.
