Case facts

Outline Appeals to the General Court seeking annulment of the Commission decision of 28 April 2011 rejecting a complaint brought by Confederación Española de Estaciones de Servicio (CEES) and Asociación de Gestores de Estaciones de Servicio (AGES) regarding Repsol CPP's alleged non-compliance with binding commitments previously accepted under Article 9 of Regulation 1/2003 in relation to Repsol CPP's long-term supply and exclusivity arrangement with service stations in Spain.

CEES and AGES are two associations representing 45% of Spanish service stations. In the contested decision, the Commission rejected their complaint against Repsol, Cepsa and AOP (an oil industry trade association) having determined, in particular, that there were not sufficient grounds for finding that Repsol had failed to comply with the agreed commitments..

Parties Applicants:
• Confederación Española de Empresarios de Estaciones de Servicio (CEEES)
• Asociación de Gestores de Estaciones de Servicio (AGES)

Defendant: European Commission
