The Asia-Pacific Antitrust Review 2017

Taiwan: Fair Trade Commission

05 April 2017

The Taiwan Fair Trade Commission (TFTC) continued to sharpen its legal tools in 2016 after amendments to the Fair Trade Act (FTA) took effect in February 2015. These amendments represent the most comprehensive overhaul of the FTA since the TFTC was established in 1992. Following this sweeping reform, the TFTC has been better equipped to maintain its independence and take enforcement action effectively against anticompetitive practices. In 2016, the TFTC imposed total fines of NT$205.95 million on 11 antitrust cases that mainly related to cartels and vertical restraints.
