Compliance with anti-trust laws and preventing anti-trust damages
On-site training courses ensure that executives and employees are kept aware of antitrust legislation. The formats of the training courses are individually tailored to the requirements of the business units and the central units. The target group includes all executives and employees who are in contact with competitors or have other roles that are critical with regard to competition. Heads of the Compliance, Audit and Legal Group functions also took up the issue under the awareness campaign. The training courses are supplemented, in particular, by regulations specific to business units and close cooperation with (antitrust) legal experts.
Antitrust damage prevention measures are an important component of antitrust compliance. To this end, DB Group introduced a comprehensive antitrust damage prevention system. An important part of this system is to use contractual conditions in markets where antitrust violations are most likely, which obligate suppliers to introduce or maintain antitrust compliance programs.
