More EU anti-trust inspections carried out in car sector in Germany

Brussels (dpa) - The European Commission "carried out inspections at the premises of car manufacturers in Germany," on Monday, according to a statement that did not identify the companies.

The commission said the inspections were related to concerns "that several German car manufacturers may have violated EU antitrust rules that prohibit cartels and restrictive business practices."

On Friday luxury German carmaker BMW confirmed that European competition officials searched its headquarters in Munich.

The commission‘s action comes after German media reports in July that BMW along with Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche and Daimler had been members of a secret cartel since the 1990s that discussed emission controls and standards.

The revelations about the cartel came as the German car industry attempted to restore public trust after VW admitted just over two years ago to cheating on diesel emissions tests around the world.

"Inspections are a preliminary step in investigations of suspected anti-competitive practices," the commission said.

"The fact that the commission carries out inspections does not mean that the inspected companies are guilty of anti-competitive behaviour, nor does it prejudge the outcome of the investigation itself."
