Antitrust Policy

The Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association (WWEMA) is a trade association whose purpose is to promote the common interests of its members and the water and wastewater industry at large, when such interests do not conflict with the common good. WWEMA is not intended to become involved, and it will not become involved, in the competitive decisions of its member companies; nor will it take action that would tend to restrain competition in the water and wastewater equipment industry.

Nevertheless, it is recognized by the Board of Directors of WWEMA that its activities could be regarded by some as a forum of opportunity to promote anti-competitive conduct. For this reason, the Board of Directors has taken this occasion, through this Statement of Policy, to make clear its unequivocal support for the policy of competition served by the antitrust laws, as well as its uncompromising intent to comply strictly in all respects with those laws.

Compliance with these guidelines involves not only avoidance of antitrust violation, but avoidance of any behavior which might be considered improper. Antitrust laws are complex and far reaching. This statement is not a complete summary of all applicable laws. It is intended to highlight and emphasize certain basic precautions designed to avoid antitrust problems. In case of doubt, seek the guidance of staff, management or the organization’s counsel or your own corporate counsel should antitrust questions arise.
