By the ruling of Administrative Court dated July 7, 2011, action lodged by the Veterinary Chamber of Serbia against decision of the Commission for Protection of Competition, was rejected.
Pursuant to the decision of the Commission, a remedy as a measure for protection of competition was imposed to Veterinary Chamber of Serbia in the form of obligation for payment of funds in the amount of 7% of total annual turnover realized in 2007, amounting to 1.243.690,00 dinars, because it concluded and effected restrictive agreement based on decision-making by the Management Board of Veterinary Chamber of Serbia of March 21,2008 under the name ”price list of minimum prices for veterinary services”.
