Inspections in a health related market

The Norwegian Competition Authority has in May carried out unannounced inspections in a health-related market.

– The Competition Authority has concerns that companies in a health related market may have exchanged competitively sensitive information between themselves. The Authority has therefore carried out inspections in this sector with the view to establish whether or not any breaches of the Competition Act have been committed, says Director of Investigation Kari Bjørkhaug.

The inspections were executed with prior authorisation from the District Court of Bergen. During the inspections, the Authority seized relevant material, which will be subject to further examination.

The Competition Authority cannot provide further information about the case, or the market involved, at this stage. General inquiries can be directed to the Authority’s press contact.
