Cartels Basics Breakfast Seminar - What all businesses need to know to comply

Date: Wednesday, 9 May 2018
Time: 7.45am – 9.00am (seminar starts at 8am)
Where: Jackson Russell, Level 13, AIG Building, 41 Shortland Street, Auckland CBD

Description: Following recent changes to the Commerce Act 1986, it is now unlawful for a business agreement or arrangement between competitors to include a “cartel” clause unless an exemption applies. This applies to all businesses (not just drug smugglers and large corporates!).

The seminar will be a practical session to get you up to date with the recent changes and what you need to do to comply. It will cover the following:
  • Basics of cartel laws
  • Implications for you and your business
  • How to assess if the cartel laws apply to what you are proposing
  • Risk areas to watch out for.
Who should attend:
  • Senior management
  • SME company directors/owners
  • Procurement staff
  • Compliance officers
  • Staff responsible for negotiating commercial contracts and arrangements
  • Accountants.
