Policy and Antitrust Compliance.
The Latin American Petrochemical and Chemical Association (APLA) is a non-profit civil association created to promote cooperation among its Members and bring industry companies and suppliers together, addressing the sector’s problems and fostering actions that can help improve it. It is important to note that APLA Members are at all times subject to restraints imposed by applicable regulations with regards to antitrust laws, which are of public interest. The Association and all its Members are bound to comply with every obligation imposed by each country’s regulations in this respect.
APLA developed the following guidelines in order to facilitate its Members’ compliance with antitrust regulations.
As a general rule, antitrust laws forbid competitors from exchanging commercial and strategic information, that is, from agreeing on the prices they will charge, the products they will offer, the production they will carry out, the customers they will serve, or the markets where they will compete. Therefore, there should be no discussion, agreement, or exchange of commercial and strategic information among Members at any of APLA’s meetings with respect to (a) surcharges, prices, discounts, or stipulated or projected profits; (b) particular customers or types of customers, or whether business will or will not be done with them; (c) production schedule; (d) proposed product offerings; (e) allocation of products or geographical markets; (f) refusal to do business with a customer or supplier; (g) how to deal with a competitor’s behavior in the market; (h) coordinating stances in tenders or biddings; (i) limiting investments or research; or any other matter involving a potentially anti-competitive practice; for the purpose of: (I) raising, lowering or stabilizing prices; (II) regulating production; (III) allocating markets; (IV) fostering unfair trade practices; (V) contributing to monopolization or any other dominant position; and (VI) violating antitrust regulations in any way.
