Published on April 22, 2020


A professional association representing opticians (Rassemblement des Opticiens de France, hereinafter “ROF”) contacted the Autorité because it seeks to aid its members - opticians whose business has been brought to a standstill by the health emergency - in their dealings with lessors concerning commercial rents. The Autorité confirms that the terms of the proposed initiative do not appear to infringe competition law.
