Collaboration to detect violations related to secret agreements between competing companies for pricing or other commercial conditions, the distribution of markets or customers, or the fraudulent distribution of public or private tenders.
Article 14 of Ley 39/2015 establishes the right and obligation for a wide range of parties to interface electronically with government agencies in order to carry out any procedure of an administrative nature. In summary, this requirement applies to all parties, except for natural persons provided that there is no express obligation (Article 14.3) and they act as individual citizens.
In the case of notifications by government agencies to a subject required to interface electronically, Article 41 establishes the obligation that these notifications be telematic.
This form has to be used to report to the CNMC the data needed to make telematic notifications, which basically consists of a NIF for which a recognised electronic certificate has been issued.
Parties not required to communicate electronically with the CNMC, can report the means of notification by completing and submitting the standard form.
This procedure can be used to report to the CNMC conduct prohibited by Ley 15/2007, de 3 de julio, de Defensa de la Competencia (LDC) (in particular, in articles 1, 2 and 3 of the Ley), as well as to report conduct prohibited by articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (the Treaty) (formerly Articles 81 and 82 of the Treaty Establishing the European Community).
This procedure can be used to file a clemency application with the CNMC, either for exemption, abbreviated exemption or a reduced fine.
