Within three months of notification of the initiation of an investigation for possible violation of Article 2 or 3 of this Act or Article 81 or Article 82 of the Treaty, companies may propose obligations that would correct the anti-competitive behaviour under investigation. The Authority may, after examining the adequacy of these obligations and under EU law, make them mandatory for these companies and terminate the procedure without establishing the infringement. 2. Where the authority establishes a provision adopted by a public administration to violate laws protecting competition and the market, a reasoned notice indicating the specificity of this infringement is issued within sixty days. If the public administration does not rule within sixty days of notification, the Authority may file a complaint with the Avvocatura dello Stato within thirty days. 3. If a company does not comply with an injunction decision, the Authority may impose fines of up to 3% of turnover. 1.
The Authority is permitted to take legal action when the general administrative provisions, regulations or measures of a public administration violate laws protecting competition and the market. 1. Judicial protection against administrative tribunals is disciplined by the Code of Administrative Procedures. [In section 1(177) of Law 124/2017 (Official Journal 189 of August 14, 2017)] 3. Orders made under paragraph 1 are governed by the provisions and regulations of Chapter IV, Title V of Decree Law No. 104 of July 2, 2010. The operating expenses of the Concorrenza e del Mercato Guarantor Authority are covered by a contribution of 0.08 thousandth of the revenue reported in the latest balance sheet approved by companies with total revenues in excess of EUR 50 million, notwithstanding the criteria set out in Article 16, paragraph 2, of this Act. The maximum contribution limit for each business must not exceed 100 times the minimum amount.
In the event of an emergency, where there is a risk of serious and irreparable harm to competition, the Authority may decide automatically, where a cursory examination reveals the existence of an infringement, that interim measures must be taken.
