Cade's Antitrust Leniency Program enables companies and/or individuals who participate, or have participated, in a cartel or other anti-competitive practice, to obtain, by reporting it to Cade, total exemption, or mitigation, of the fines and penalties applicable to them, by entering into a leniency agreement.
It is extremely important to report the conduct to Cade as soon as possible, once only the first company and / or individual to report it will be able to enter into a leniency agreement and obtain total exemption or mitigation of sanctions.
In order to enter into a leniency agreement, interested parties must confess and cease their participation in the cartel or other anti-competitive practice, report it and collaborate in the entire process of its investigation, providing it with relevant information and documents.
