This chapter is intended to be a reference for competition agencies that are undertaking international cooperation or information sharing in the course of anti-cartel investigations, and is not intended to be a comprehensive guide. The ICN Anti-Cartel Enforcement Manual is a work in progress and all chapters may be updated or revised in the future. This chapter complements existing chapters on searches, raids and inspections, leniency, digital evidence gathering, case initiation, interviewing techniques, investigative strategy, case resolution methods, and cartel awareness, outreach and compliance. Finally, this chapter and the others that form the AntiCartel Enforcement Manual must be read in the context of current enforcement laws, policies and practices of each jurisdiction.
