Conference "Draft Directive on Unfair Commercial Practices in the Food Supply Chain and the Polish Act on Counteracting the Unfair Use of Contractual Advantage" 20 June 2018.
The fight against unfair trading practices in the food supply chain is gaining momentum both in Poland and at the EU level. Since the middle of last year, the Act on Counteracting Unfair Use of Contractual Advantage in Trade in Agricultural and Food Products has been in force in Poland, the enforcement of which has been entrusted to the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection. In April, the European Commission announced a draft directive with objectives similar to those set by the Polish legislator before the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection - protection of small and medium-sized agricultural producers and processors
The status of work on the directive and its possible interaction with the Polish act will be the subject of a scientific conference organized by the Center for Antimonopoly and Regulatory Studies (CARS) of the Faculty of Management of the University of Warsaw (Warsaw, ul. Szturmowa 1/3, Aula C) on June 20, 2018. The conference will also concern the evolution of trade relations between suppliers and retail chains in the context of new regulations.
We cordially invite you to participate!
