The Office of Fair Trading is updating its guidance for UK farmers on competition law. The guidance: 'Frequently asked questions: how does co-operation between farm businesses fit in with competition law' was originally issued in July 2004. Competition law has developed since 2004 and we believe that it is timely to reflect these developments in a revised set of FAQs. We are also keen to ensure that the guidance is clear and tackles questions that are relevant to farmers today.
To assist with this updating, we would welcome submissions on the following:
It should be noted that the FAQs are not intended to provide a substitute for independent legal advice on potential co-operation arrangements. Similarly, we will not be able to provide guidance on or assessments of detailed hypothetical arrangements or situations.
If you wish to provide views and/or to suggest additional questions, please send responses by post to:
Office of Fair Trading
2-6 Salisbury Square
Or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please submit responses by 21 September 2011.
Any media enquiries should be directed to a member of our Press Office.
