Bleaching Chemicals cartel – Solvay appeals to ECJ

Solvay SA has lodged an appeal with the European Court of Justice against a judgment of the General Court relating to the Commission’s 2006 decision to impose a total of EUR 388.128 million on 7 participants of the bleaching chemicals cartel.  Although the General Court had reduced the fine imposed on Solvay SA (because the Commission had erred in its assessment of the duration of Solvay’s participation in the infringement and had not given sufficient credit for the level of co-operation provided by Solvay under the leniency notice), it otherwise dismissed the appeal by Solvay. Solvay claims that the General Court erred in establishing that there had been a breach of Article 101 TFEU and in its assessment of the application of the 2002 Leniency Notice.
