Anti-Trust and Restraint of Trade Policy

The International Erosion Control Association (IECA) is comprised of competitors, or potential competitors, that share common interests and seek solutions to common problems. IECA conferences, meetings, chapter functions and listservs provide these competitors with opportunities to discuss a variety of business practices and conditions within their industries and professions. IECA strictly prohibits any discussions or actions among its directors, employees and/or representatives that may have the effect of improperly restraining trade and competition in the marketplace in violation of applicable laws. Accordingly, it is IECA’s policy to prohibit the following: 1) Any discussions, understandings, or arrangements (either expressed or implied) about setting or fixing prices that will be charged for goods or services. Improper price discussions include agreements and understandings not only on the prices themselves, but also on price related issues, such as discounts, credit terms, surcharges, mark-ups, etc. 2) Any discussions, understandings, or arrangements (either expressed or implied) designed to injure a competitor or squeeze it from the market. This includes collective action to refuse to deal with a company or boycott its goods or services. 3) Any discussions, understandings, or arrangements (either expressed or implied) regarding the division or segregation of markets. Agreements and understandings to refrain from competing or advertising in certain markets can narrow the choices available to the consumer and unlawfully stifle competition. 4) Any discussions, understandings, or arrangements (either expressed or implied) that unreasonably restrain trade, stifle competition, involve unfair methods of competition or otherwise violate applicable laws.
