In a first-instance decision, the Office for the Protection of Competition has fined RITCHY EU sro Kc6.7 million (€270,000) for resale price maintenance practices.
According to the decision, RITCHY EU, a distributor of e-cigarettes and refills, violated the Act on the Protection of Competition between 6 September 2017 and 31 March 2019 by imposing on its customers minimum resale prices for the goods concerned. Thus, these resellers could not offer their customers the products at lower prices than those set by RITCHY EU. The company monitored the resellers' compliance with the minimum prices that it set and, in the event of non-compliance, threatened to terminate their cooperation.
This decision is not yet final and may be appealed.
