YAZAKI Corporation Key Developments

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Appeals Yazaki Corporation Penalty Decision

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has appealed the recent decision of the Federal Court imposing a penalty of $9.5 million against Yazaki Corporation for collusive conduct. The ACCC submitted to the Court that Yazaki should be ordered to pay a penalty of between $42 million and $55 million, to reflect both the size of Yazaki's operations and the very serious nature of its collusive conduct. The ACCC has also appealed an earlier finding by Justice Besanko that Yazaki's subsidiary, Australian Arrow Pty Ltd, did not give effect to the collusive arrangements made by Yazaki in 2003 and 2008. The appeal will be heard on a date to be fixed by the Full Federal Court.
