Abstract

This paper deals with the re-adoption by the European Commission of decisions imposing fines on undertakings found to have participated in cartels in violation of Article 101 TFEU (cartel decisions) following the annulment of those decisions by the EU Courts (General Court and Court of Justice) on procedural grounds. The paper gives an overview of the cases in which such re-adoption has taken place and analyses the applicable legal principles and policy considerations.
