International Woodfiber Resource and Trade Conference
September 21-23, 2020 (Field Trip September 24-25)
The avoidance of collusive practices by members of a trade or industry, which affect prices, fees, or the ability of others to compete is a major goal of the antitrust laws. This requires that particular attention be paid to activities at RISI Conferences so that anticompetitive effects do not result. A summary of some of the aspects of antitrust compliance follows:
Therefore, it is prudent and, in fact, essential to avoid discussions or activities from which unlawful action could be inferred by the enforcement agencies. Any such activity could subject attending companies to costly and highly prejudicial antitrust attack.
If at any time during the course of the conference you as an individual feel that the discussion borders on possible violation of antitrust compliance, you should indicate to the chair that you object. If the discussion continues, you should remove yourself from the situation after requesting that written record of your objection be made.
