Requesting information from the competition register

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Do you want to know whether there is an entry against you in the competition register? Then you can request information from the Federal Cartel Office.

The Bundeskartellamt keeps a competition register (WebReg) of companies against which certain final criminal convictions or fines have been imposed. You can apply for an extract from the WebReg and obtain information on entries about you as a person or about your company. If there are no entries, you will receive so-called "negative information".

Public clients can use WebReg to find out whether legally binding judgments or fines have been issued against a company before awarding a contract. The competent public prosecutor's offices and fine authorities report all relevant criminal and fine decisions to WebReg. The Bundeskartellamt checks the notifications for obvious errors and informs the companies of a planned registration.

If you receive such a notification, you can object to the planned registration on the grounds that the data provided is incorrect. Notifications are deleted from the register after 3 or 5 years, depending on the severity of the offense. You can obtain early deletion by submitting an application for self-cleaning.
