Anti-Trust Policy and Caution
As members of a trade association, each person attending this function must be mindful of the constraints imposed by federal and state anti-trust laws. The people here today represent companies that are in direct competition with one another. IRI’s purpose is to provide a forum for the free exchange of ideas on the designated topics. It is not the purpose of this meeting to reach any agreement that could have anti-competitive effects. Individuals must keep in mind that a violation of the anti-trust laws may subject them to fines – or worse. You can avoid problems by following these simple guidelines:
- Stick to the published agenda
- Be cautious about discussions involving pricing, premiums, benefits to be offered or terminated, and who should or should not be covered. The Justice Department views these types of discussions with concern and suspicion. Never take a poll of participants’ positions or make a collective agreement on these issues.
IRI is dedicated to assisting each of its members in achieving their competitive potential.
