Global carmakers are raided by EU antitrust regulators as they suspect breaching of bloc’s cartel rules. British’s competition also launched a probe. Also, the European Commission sent a request for companies’ information. The names of the companies are not revealed yet.
“The inspections and requests for information concern possible collusion in relation to the collection, treatment, and recovery of end-of-life cars and vans which are considered waste,” the EU competition enforcer said in a statement. Renault said to Reuters, “confirms that it was visited today by European Commission investigators” and that it was cooperating fully. Opel, a brand of world No. 4 carmaker Stellantis said its offices had been searched by investigators.
