The Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) today issued cease and desist orders and surcharge payment orders to the participants in bidding for the manufacturers selling specific apparatuses for hybrid optical communication and transmission path ordered by Chubu Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (CEPCO), finding that they substantially restrained competition in the field of the apparatuses by designating successful bidders and enabling those bidders to win the biddings. The total amount of the surcharge to be paid is 319.21 million yen.

In the hearing procedure, the JFTC notified the participants of the contents of the proposed orders in writing and provided them with opportunities to view and copy the evidence which became a basis for the orders and to submit their opinions and evidence to the JFTC. Before issuing the orders, the JFTC took into consideration the opinions and the evidence submitted. A recipient dissatisfied with the orders may file a revocation suit against the JFTC as a defendant, within 6 months from such knowledge or within a year from the date of the orders.
