Alleged violation of art. 101 TFEU in the recycling sector of spent lead-acid batteries and accumulators

The Italian Competition Authority opened an investigation against a consortium of several smelters and batteries’ producers to ascertain an alleged agreement to lower prices and share the market of spent lead-acid automotive and industrial batteries for recycling. Lear is assisting the consortium in its defensive strategy against the allegation of exclusionary practices, and it is contributing to the definition of the commitments’ proposal, which is intended to address the competition concerns identified by the Authority.
