14 July 2016
Mayer Brown Legal Update

Undertakings or associations of undertakings may apply for Block Exemption Orders in order to secure the benefit of an exemption to a category of agreements.

Where similar agreements are commonly used by undertakings throughout a market, it may indeed be more appropriate for undertakings or associations of undertakings to consider seeking a Block Exemption Order for such agreements rather than to apply separately for an individual Decision regarding their specific agreement.

  • What is a Block Exemption Order and when should you consider applying for one?
  • How to apply for a Block Exemption Order?
  • What happens after a Block Exemption Order?
