The Act on Combating Unfair Use of Contractual Advantage in Trading of Agricultural and Food Products of 15 December 2016 enters into force today.
Traple Konarski Podrecki i Wspólnicy Law Firm offers legal advice on the application of the new legal act. In particular, we offer assistance in determining how the unfair use of contractual advantage should be interpreted. It will be especially of the essence how competition law authorities will practically interpret the objective scope, i.e. to which products and commercial relations the new act applies, and the subjective scope, i.e. to whom the new act applies. Focus will also be on issues related to the very concept of contractual advantage and the unfair use thereof, settlement systems used between suppliers and buyers, and the manner of negotiating new commercial terms.
