A. Ahlstrom Osakeyhtio et al. v. Commission of the European Communities (Re Wood Pulp Cartel) (Wood Pulp II)
European Union Court of Justice
Joined Cases 89, 104, 114, 116, 117 & 125 to 129/85, 1988 E.C.R. I-05193 (1988)
The Commission of European Communities (the Commission) (defendant) found that a group of wood-pulp producers including A. Ahlstrom Osakeyhtio (collectively, the pulp producers) (plaintiffs) infringed Article 85 of a treaty governing competition in the common market of the European Community. [Editor's Note: The European Community was later incorporated into the European Union, and Article 85 became Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.] All the involved pulp producers had registered offices that were outside the European Community. The Commission found that the pulp producers engaged in concerted pricing decisions that were announced quarterly in the European Community and that were implemented in transactions occurring with customers in the European Community. The pulp producers filed a challenge to the Commission’s decision in the European Union Court of Justice, arguing that the Commission had no jurisdiction over the matter because the involved pulp producers were not European and had not reached any agreement to set prices in Europe.
