It is IASIU’s policy to comply with all federal and state antitrust laws. The responsibility for antitrust compliance rests with IASIU’s individual directors, officers, representatives and members.
Antitrust laws mandate, in summary, that competitors may not restrain competition among themselves with reference to the price, quality, or distribution of any products; and that they may not act in concert to restrict the competitive capabilities or opportunities of their competitors, suppliers, or customers.
It is generally unlawful to fix prices, boycott, or to engage in anticompetitive conduct. Even an “offer” to engage in anticompetitive conduct — made in the context of a trade association meeting — may be “accepted” by the subsequent conduct of the association’s members. Therefore, it is important that all IASIU directors, officers, representatives and members avoid this conduct, or even the appearance of it, in their activities at all times.
