Denmark: Agreements to fix taxi fares in local districts anti-competitive

01 April 2001

The Competition Appeal Board has upheld a decision by the Competition Council prohibiting the imposition of uniform taxi fares within a certain geographic area. According to the Competition Appeal Board, only the maximum prices laid down by Danish legislation are applicable and it is not possible to set uniform or minimum prices. The matter has been brought before the ordinary courts.
