Decision of the Competition Council of the Hungarian Competition Authority (Gazdasági Versenyhivatal - GVH) Vj-88/2006: Pannon Medisana Kft.

The Competition Council of the Hungarian Competition Authority (Gazdasági Versenyhivatal - GVH) established in its decision, issued on 16th November 2006, that Pannon Medisana Kft. infringed the provisions on the prohibition of unfair manipulation of consumer choice of the Hungarian Competition Act.

In the competition supervision proceedings the Competition Council of the GVH concluded that Pannon Medisana Kft.`s advertisements were capable of misleading consumers because it attributed healing effects to its "Medinose" product, although it could not prove the truthfulness of this statement.

The Competition Council of the GVH imposed a fine of HUF 1,5 million (approx. EUR 5.700) on Pannon Medisana Kft. for its unlawful behaviour.
