SÖDERTALJE, Sweden, April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In a judgment delivered earlier this year, the EU General Court ruled in favor of the European Commission that Scania had breached EU antitrust rules. Scania appealed this judgment to the European Court of Justice.
On September 27, 2017the European Commission has adopted a decision finding Scania liable to a fine of more than 880 million euros for allegedly participating in inappropriate exchanges of information and collusion with other European truck manufacturers with regard to the pricing and the introduction of emission control technologies during the period 1997 -2011.
Scania appealed to the Tribunal later that year. On February 2, 2022the General Court delivered a judgment confirming the conclusions of the European Commission against Scania, dismissing Scania’s appeal in its entirety and confirming the amount of the fines set by the European Commission.
Scania continues to contest all of the European Commission’s findings, subsequently upheld by the Court, and maintains that the company has not concluded any pan-European price agreements with other manufacturers, nor has it agreed to delay the introduction of new engines complying with EU legislation for exhaust emissions.
Scania therefore appealed on April 8, 2022 against the judgment of the General Court, to the Court of Justice of the European Communities as the last court of the EU.
