DGM-Inventum GmbH is committed to consistent compliance with national and European antitrust law and works exclusively following these regulations. The aim is to avoid economic cartels made between companies and other market players and maintain an unhindered and as diverse as possible competition. The LLC work includes meetings where representatives of competing companies exchange views on issues, experiences, and shared interests. This must not restrict or exclude competition between companies or disadvantage their customers or suppliers. Therefore, at all events, committee meetings, and other organizations' gatherings, no illegal or questionable topics covered by the antitrust law may be discussed.
Not only explicit agreements, e.g., on quantities, prices, or capacities but also all other forms of cooperation that distort competition, e.g., through concerted practices, are inadmissible. The exchange or unilateral disclosure of so-called strategic information or sensitive data may also be prohibited. Strategic information or sensitive issues include, in particular, information on:
Should the manager or another participant determine that a violation of antitrust regulations is imminent, the inadmissibility must be pointed out and the critical behavior terminated. Even if there are doubts about the admissibility under antitrust law, the relevant work must be stopped immediately.
