Decision of the Icelandic Competition Authority has been rescinded

On November 3 2014 Eimskipafélag Íslands hf. and its subsidiaries Eimskip Ísland ehf. and TVG-Zimsen ehf. appealed to the Competition Appeals Committee the decision of the Icelandic Competition Authority of 28 October 2014, where Eimskip’s request for access to the report and supporting documentation to the Special Prosecutor was declined.

The Competition Appeals Committee has now ruled that the decision of the Icelandic Competition Authority is rescinded. The Competition Appeals Committee also ruled that this case should go back to the Icelandic Competition Authority for further assessment and a new decision on Eimskip’s request for access to the information, in accordance with applicable provisions of the Competition Act and the Administrative Procedures Act.

Eimskip is hoping that in the light of this new ruling of the Competition Appeals Committee the Company will be granted access to the requested information at the earliest occasion. This is the third ruling of the Competition Appeals Committee where a decision of the Icelandic Competition Authority is rescinded, in whole or in part.
