Agreements and coordinated practices with third parties, in particular competitors, which have the effect or effect of restricting competition, are prohibited and will not be tolerated by PORR.
Anti-competitive agreements include written agreements, informal (including verbal) agreements, other concerted practices with third parties (in particular competitors, but also suppliers or customers) if the objective or actual effect is to restrict competition.
In particular, agreements on the price (e.g. offer or resale prices), agreements on the division of a market, agreements on conditions vis-à-vis third companies, agreements not to supply a third party or not to offer any services, as well as any other agreement which restricts competition or which has the object or effect of restricting it are prohibited.
The making of such an agreement is a violation of compliance. The conclusion of such an agreement is treated as equivalent to other coordinated conduct if it has the objective or de facto effect of restricting competition. All PORR employees must carefully select their conduct in contacts with competitors and other third parties. Even the appearance of anti-competitive behavior must be avoided.
Furthermore, agreements with suppliers and subcontractors with the aim or actual effect of restricting competition are prohibited.
In particular, it is forbidden to agree which prices the supplier or subcontractor offers to a third company, in particular to competitors, or to agree which conditions under competition law the supplier or subcontractor grants to a third company.
The conclusion of such an agreement is a compliance violation.
All PORR employees must carefully select their behavior in contacts with suppliers and subcontractors. Even the slight appearance of anticompetitive behavior must be avoided.
