Antitrust Training Video   

The antitrust training video, that can be viewed by visiting this link, was created by AICC, FBA, and ICPF in collaboration with Foley & Lardner, FBA’s legal counsel, to provide education on antitrust laws and to assist employees and companies in making sure they maintain complete  compliance. The video outlines antitrust law and provides basic principles and guidelines to follow to avoid costly violations that could cause lasting and significant harm to employees, companies and the industry as a whole. Please note that although this video is designed to educate, it is intended to supplement, not to replace, individual company antitrust compliance policies and training programs. Additional supporting materials to the video include the FBA Antitrust Compliance Stoplight Teaching Tool and Antitrust Training Video Tips to Remember. The Antitrust Stoplight is not meant to be comprehensive, but to provide general guidelines on what companies and their employees can and can’t do at trade association events.
