Following the decision by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) earlier this year to fine 10 demolition and asbestos removal firms almost £60 million for colluding to rig bids for contracts, Build UK has updated its guidance on preventing anti‐competitive behaviour in construction.

The guidance, which is available to FIS members here, has been written by Wedlake Bell LLP and explains common violations of competition law, such as cartel activities and cover pricing, with the latest CMA decision now included as a case study. It is designed to help businesses and directors comply with their legal obligations by explaining the risks and the steps they should take.
