Fines imposed by Belgian Competition Authority for cartel involving Infrabel public contract (CMS)

On 3 May 2017, the Investigation and Prosecution Service of the Belgian Competition Authority imposed a total fine of 1.8 million euros for a cartel between five companies relating to a public procurement organized by Infrabel.

The five companies are ABB, Siemens, AEG, Sécheron and Schneider.

The investigation was launched in 2013 following a leniency application lodged by ABB. Following this leniency application, ABB was granted a total exemption from its fine. Other undertakings that also presented a leniency application were granted a reduction of between 30% and 50%. All the undertakings at stake opted for the settlement procedure, which granted a fine reduction of 10%.
