New Vertical Block Exemption Regulation and new Vertical Guidelines

25 May 2022


The new Vertical Block Exemption Regulation and new Vertical Guidelines bring to a close the European Commission’s three-year long process of assessing and revising the former rules. This reform aims to readjust the Regulation’s “safe harbour” to adapt the rules on vertical agreements to the new digital era. Areas such as dual pricing, dual distribution and digital platforms have all been reformed.
