Investigations and dawn raids by the European Commission: a quick guide | Practical Law

Publication date: December 1, December 1, Take copies of, or extracts from, the books and business records. Seal any business premises and books or records during an investigation normally for no more than 72 hours. Ask for oral explanations on-the-spot about facts and documents.

When can these powers be used? The Commission can use its powers when "necessary" To apply and enforce Articles and , the Commission has the power to require production of all necessary information and to undertake all necessary inspections of companies. However, it may only inspect premises other than business premises if it has a reasonable suspicion that books or other records related to the business, which may be relevant to prove a serious violation of Article or Article , are kept at those premises.

In particular, the Commission uses its dawn raid powers in relation to suspected cartels see Practice note, Cartels: EU law and practice. How are the powers exercised? The Commission may operate under formal decisions and conduct dawn raids without notice The Commission may request information by a simple request or a formal decision.

A formal decision taken by the Commission as a whole will set a fixed time limit and compliance is mandatory and subject to the imposition of fines. Similarly, a dawn raid of business premises may be conducted under an "authorisation" issued without the approval of the full Commission or under a formal decision. In the case of an authorisation, a firm may refuse voluntarily to submit to an investigation. However, any such refusal is likely to result in the adoption of a formal decision, so imposing a duty to co-operate on the firm. An inspection of non-business premises can only be conducted under a decision.

Commission officials conducting an investigation will usually be assisted by officials from the relevant national competition authorities. The Commission may ask these authorities to conduct the investigation on its behalf. Where a company refuses to comply with an inspection ordered by a decision, the member state must provide the necessary assistance to allow the Commission to obtain access to the premises, including obtaining a warrant.

Practical considerations for companies under investigation Companies should put in place procedures for handling investigations. In particular, companies should:. Check whether the inspection is being conducted under an authorisation or warrant. Examine and take copies of relevant documents in order to determine the scope of the investigation.

Contact lawyers and ask the Commission officials to wait until they arrive. Ensure that the Commission officials are accompanied at all times. Contact IT and all on-site personnel and inform them of investigation, or importance of cooperation, and remind them to ensure that IT systems do not destroy or delete any documentation during the investigation. Check any documents requested by the Commission to ensure they are within the scope of the investigation and to determine whether they are covered by legal privilege or are commercially confidential.

Mark confidential documents as such and withhold privileged documents. Take a note of all files and documents examined by the Commission and retain copies of all documents copied or taken by the Commission. Take notes of any oral explanations given and of any areas of dispute with the Commission officials for example, relating to legal privilege.

Designate a computer expert to assist the Commission inspectors in relation to all electronic records. If the investigation is ongoing or if the Commission inspectors seal any rooms or documents, ensure all staff and on-site contractors are instructed not to disturb this seal under any circumstances. Any evidence of tampering can automatically result in large fines.

After the dawn raid, hold follow-up meetings to decide what further steps should be taken, such as whether further explanations or documents should be provided to the Commission and potentially if there appears to be evidence of infringement whether a leniency application should be made.
