Antitrust Policy

Although numerous industries are represented in our membership, there are nonetheless competitors at our events, both in-person and virtual. As such, it is important that all participants at SCIP events are educated and vigilant about the applicable antitrust laws.  At industry meetings any discussions among competitors of current costs, prices or fees relative to your products or to others’ products and services, or focusing on the “cons” of working with third parties, could constitute antitrust violations. Although our meetings aren't industry-specific, any discussions of the following issues (whether in the business sessions, breakouts, or social events) are not appropriate and should be immediately brought to the attention of the SCIP team:

  • Negative comments about any supplier, vendor, or customer
  • Suggesting that you or your firm won't serve a particular customer or territory, or purchase from a particular supplier
  • Suggesting or implying that others shouldn't work with a particular firm
  • Pricing (including current and future prices as well as pricing policies, both for your products, those of a supplier, competitor, etc.) and non-public profit information
  • Specific terms or conditions of doing business with customers or suppliers (such as discounts, payment terms, rebates, etc.)

Please contact our team immediately if you have concerns about our antitrust policy.
