Acting as an economic operator is subject to rules

Our services

Be and remain ‘Government and Free Markets Act-proof'

The Dutch Act on Government and Free Markets applies, in principle, to all government organisations and public enterprises that carry out an economic activity. We assist government organisations and public enterprises in making their organisation ‘Government and Free Markets Act-proof’ by independently assessing compliance with the rules of conduct under the Act.

Multidisciplinary teams

In addition to testing the rules of conduct, we regularly advise government organisations and public enterprises in multidisciplinary teams on the realization of the integral cost allocation in the prices of goods or services, the compliant organisation of data use, the setting up of the supervision of the preferential treatment of public enterprises and the implementation of an adequate separation of functions. This may prevent the imposition of penalties or liability for damages and tax risks.

“We are used to allowing the administrative context take the lead, also in complex legal processes.”
