Archived — Leniency Program

Under the Leniency Program, the Bureau may recommend to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) that cooperating persons who have breached the cartel provisions under the Competition Act, who are not eligible for a grant of immunity, nevertheless be considered for lenient treatment in sentencing.

While the Bureau may make leniency recommendations, this Program does not bind the DPP. It is the courts that are ultimately responsible for sentencing upon conviction.
