Abstract

The first 10-year Block Exemption was granted to European vehicle manufacturers in 1985, when it became clear that their exclusive vertical agreements with their franchised dealers contravened the Treaty of Rome. It was renewed without major change in 1995for a further seven years. Both those regulations essentially accepted the manufacturers’ arguments and could almost have been written by them. But then the doubts crept in, as the manufacturers started to stretch the limits of acceptable behaviour.
