END OF LEGAL PROCEEDINGS BROUGHT BEFORE INDECOPI


Decision No. 006-2016-/SDC-INDECOPI, recently issued by the Competition Defense Special Chamber of the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) Tribunal, partially reverses Decision No. 132-2015/CCD-INDECOPI, previously issued by INDECOPI’s Unfair Competition Supervisory Commission, and declares valid the complaint filed by the ATPP, thereby holding Colegio de Traductores del Perú (CTP) liable for having committed acts of unfair competition by false statements.  Moreover, by virtue of the first-mentioned decision, INDECOPI imposes appropriate sanctions on the CTP and orders it to make the necessary rectifications within the scope established therein.  

A comprehensive and detailed analysis of INDECOPI's final ruling is underway, to assess its effects on the ATPP and the translation market.  Such report will be made available to ATPP members at a meeting that will be called in due time.
