The ACCC investigated a complaint that LMC Pacific Pty Ltd had engaged in resale price maintenance in relation to the termination of supply of Cartier brand products to a retailer.
An Undertaking was accepted by the Commission where LMC Pacific and it's managing director, Mr Gilles Haumont, agreed not to engage in conduct which constitutes resale price maintenance.
