Competition complaints investigated

Details of our completed casework regarding competition law.

Infringement decisions

On 17 November 2006 we informed EWS Ltd of our decision that it had infringed the Chapter II Prohibition of the Competition Act 1998. This decision was based on our findings that EWS concluded contracts whose terms had the effect of excluding competitors from the market for coal haulage by rail and that it had also pursued discriminatory and predatory pricing practices in the same market.

Non-infringement decisions

These are decisions where, following an investigation under our Competition Act powers, we have decided that the conduct complained about does not infringe the Competition Act 1998.

Case closures

These are complaints considered under the Competition Act but where an infringement or non-infringement decision has not been reached.
