MADRID, 16 (IRIN)

Research Bureau of the National Competition Commission (CNC) has initiated disciplinary proceedings against various companies and industry associations hire without a driver by a possible anti-competitive conduct, the agency said in a statement.

The CNC has opened proceedings against companies: Auriga Crown Car Hire, Bardon and Rufo 67, Centauro Rent-a-car, Car Rental Drivalia and on Goldcar Spain, Helle Auto, Costa del Sol New Cars, Nice Cars, Record- Go Sun Mar Vacation Rentals and Car Rental.

They have also been included in this dossier Car Rental Victoria, CARGEST, Dickmanns Rent a Car, Rent a Car Guerin, IDAPI, Prima Rent a Car and AECA organizations (Association of Car Rental Business in Andalusia) and the Association of Entrepreneurs Auto Rental (Aesva).

The governing body Bernaldo de Quiros Joaquin Garcia said that these entities may have adopted agreements for specific pricing and trading conditions in the market for car rental without driver in the country.

The CNC said that this behavior is considered a violation "very serious", which could mean a fine of up to 10% of the total turnover of the infringing organizations "in the year immediately preceding the imposition of the fine."

The Commission decided to initiate a confidential report to determine, first, the concurrence of circumstances to justify the initiation of disciplinary proceedings. Following this information, it was agreed to inspections at the premises of businesses and associations on October 27, 2011 and January 11, 2012.

Competition explained that, in this way opens a maximum of 18 months for the instruction of the disciplinary proceedings and their resolution by the Council of the National Competition Commission.
