Settlement in case involving first interim injunction application in the CAT

Dervla Broderick

We reported previously (see here) on the first case of its kind under the newly expanded UK regime for competition damages claims, which involved an application by NCRQ Ltd to the Competition Appeal Tribunal (“CAT”) for an injunction restraining the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (“IOSH”) from continuing to abuse its dominant position by refusing to accredit NCRQ’s qualification of a diploma in Applied Health and Safety.

On 12 January 2016, the CAT published an order consenting to the settlement of the proceedings. Under the settlement IOSH has agreed, for a period of three years, to grant accreditation at the level of graduate membership to NCRQ’s diploma. The interim injunction hearing listed for 12 January was vacated.
