About the consultation

The Competition (Jersey) Law 2005 was introduced to ensure that businesses in Jersey compete fairly with each other on the basis of their products and prices and without any unfair advantages.

Under Article 8(1) of the Competition Law, anti-competitive arrangements between businesses are prohibited. This prohibition covers, among other things, arrangements entered into between two or more businesses operating at different levels of the production or distribution chain, and relating to the conditions under which the parties may purchase, sell or resell certain goods or services. These are so-called vertical arrangements.

Under certain conditions vertical arrangements are likely to help create efficiencies and the development of new markets, which may offset any negative effects resulting from the restrictions contained in the arrangement.

Through this consultation, the Government of Jersey is seeking views on its recommendation for a Ministerial Order to exempt from the prohibition laid down in Article 8(1) certain types of vertical arrangements which produce objective economic benefits and allow consumers to receive a fair share of the resulting benefits.

Vertical Arrangements Block Exemption
