ICN Roundtable on Enforcement Cooperation
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
The ICN held a one-day Roundtable on Enforcement Cooperation, hosted by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Justice, aimed at deepening the discussion of enforcement cooperation within the network. The program addressed enforcement cooperation in merger, unilateral conduct, and cartel matters, and identified cooperation-related issues for further ICN attention.
Agenda: Participants discussed the practical aspects of cooperation, including: the need for and objectives of cooperation; the types of cases that may benefit from cooperation; cooperation tools and the types of cases in which they are used; impediments to cooperation; confidentiality and privilege considerations; cooperation on remedies; how parties can facilitate cooperation; and what makes for effective cooperation.
