This Chapter is intended to give an overview of possible case resolution methods, ideas for new case resolution methods, and some factors that agencies might consider when deciding how to resolve a specific case. Some of the methods and relevant factors are reinforced by case studies from different jurisdictions. These case studies may serve as a reference tool for considering the case resolution methods used by different agencies. The Chapter uses contributions from ICN member agencies as its primary source of information. For this purpose, ICN member agencies were requested to respond to a questionnaire. In addition to the completed questionnaires, this Chapter draws on previous work by the Cartel Working Group and on relevant reports from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (“OECD”).
