Antitrust Policy

Applicability of Antitrust Laws

Professional societies, including the CCA, are subject to federal and state antitrust laws, and must constantly monitor their activities to ensure continued compliance with all antitrust regulations.

Purpose of Antitrust Laws

The antitrust laws prohibit any concerted activity or combination of competitors from interfering with free competition. In other words, the primary thrust of the law is to control private economic power by protecting competition. Persons and organizations are prohibited from engaging in any action which unreasonably restrains commerce or trade (i.e., competition). Per se violations (practices presumed to be inherently wrong regardless of the motivating factors) include: agreements to fix or stabilize prices, to divide markets, to allocate production, or to impose boycotts. In essence, this means any concerted action that significantly diminishes rivalry among competing firms.

The CCA’s Policy

The Board of Directors of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries intends adherence to the antitrust laws. The CCA provides guidance on compliance by regularly communicating to our membership, attendees at our continuing education offerings, and committee/task force meetings regarding both the applicability and purpose of antitrust laws.
