Van Bael & Bellis assists the Royal Meteorological Institute in Belgian competition investigation into supply of meteorological data
Van Bael & Bellis successfully defended the Belgian Royal Meteorological Institute (‘RMI’) against allegations of abusive conduct with regard to the supply of meteorological data. The complaint had been filed by The Great Circle, a company offering meteorological navigation software.
On 15 February 2019, the Belgian Competition Authority refused to impose interim measures on RMI as requested by The Great Circle, on the grounds that the applicant’s complaint had not established a prima facie infringement of Articles IV.1 or IV.2 of the Code of Economic Law and Articles 101 and 102 Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
Van Bael & Bellis attorneys Peter L’Ecluse, Valérie Lefever and Eléonore Waterkeyn assisted RMI in this matter.
