Road marking consortium found guilty of infringing the Competition Act
The Court of Appeal of Eastern Denmark (the High Court) has ruled that the illegal consortium agreement entered into by the undertakings LKF Vejmarkering (now GVCO) and Eurostar Denmark constituted a criminal infringement of the Danish Competition Act. However, due to special circumstances, neither the companies or three management members will be punished. The verdict concerns the so-called road marking consortium.
