Antitrust Policy of the International Society for Respiratory Protection

The International Society for Respiratory Protection (ISRP) is committed to compliance with all antitrust laws. ISRP is organized as a forum for a free and open discussion of diverse opinions and may not play any role in the competitive decisions of its members or their employees, nor in any way restrict competition between members or potential members. The Board of Directors recognizes that ISRP’s work to bring together occupational health and safety professionals in the field of respiratory protection could provide opportunities for anti-competitive conduct. This policy is intended to apply to all ISRP programs, activities, and events. The United States, the individual states, and many other countries have antitrust laws. The main antitrust laws at the federal level in the United States, where ISRP is incorporated, are the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, the Robinson-Patman Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act. Almost all of the individual states have their own antitrust laws, as do some other countries. Violations of antitrust laws can result in civil and criminal penalties for ISRP, its members, and their employees. Certain antitrust violations are referred to as “hard core” or “per se” offenses. These actions are automatically presumed by a court to be illegal, even if there is no actual harm to competition. Violations falling in this area are likely to be prosecuted as criminal offenses and include: price-fixing agreements, bid-rigging agreements, and market or customer allocation agreements. Other activities may not lead to criminal prosecution but are still sensitive and could lead to investigations or litigation. These types of activities include: group boycotts or “concerted refusals to deal;” exclusionary standard setting, certification, or code of ethics; vertical agreements concerning price; tie-in sales; and exclusionary membership criteria. Questions or concerns about this policy as well as reports of noncompliance should be sent to the President of ISRP or, if they are not available, to another member of the Executive Committee.
