Understanding IEEE SA's Antitrust, Competition, and Commercial Terms Policies (English)
IEEE and IEEE SA rules and policies govern IEEE standards development, but IEEE’s standards development activities must also comply with the laws in jurisdictions in which IEEE conducts its activities. Nearly all countries and jurisdictions around the world have “antitrust” or “competition” laws. These laws are designed to help keep markets competitive by prohibiting anticompetitive agreements and abuse of dominant market positions.
This self-study module aims to prevent predatory business practices by promoting fair competition and innovation consistent with the antitrust and competition laws that regulate IEEE, and IEEE SA rules and policies that govern IEEE standards development.
