AFPM Antitrust Guidelines
AFPM takes its antitrust compliance obligations seriously and our antitrust policy goes beyond the minimum requirements.

To ensure compliance with the antitrust laws and avoid any appearance of anticompetitive activity, every participant in AFPM meetings and AFPM activities must adhere to the AFPM antitrust guidelines.

Therefore, there should be no discussion or disclosure of information with respect to:
• Individual company's prices, profits, premiums, surcharges, or discounts;
• your intent to do business with specific customers;
• proposed product offerings;
• allocation of geographic or product markets;
• any refusal to deal with a customer or supplier;
• how to respond to the market behavior of a competitor;
• company's non-public, confidential information; or
• any other topic involving a potentially anticompetitive practice.

It is not only your duty to follow the AFPM policy, but also to affirmatively stop any conversations on impermissible subjects. If a discussion presents an antitrust issue, raise your concern immediately. If the discussion continues, announce that you are leaving the meeting because you have an antitrust concern and immediately report your concern to AFPM staff and legal counsel. These Guidelines apply both during the meeting and at informal social events involving AFPM members.

This reference is an overview of AFPM's Antitrust Guidelines. It is not a substitute for legal counsel. Any and all antitrust related concerns should be addressed to AFPM's General Counsel.

Ethical Responsibility and Professional and Personal Conduct Code

• Refraining from scheduling general attendance meetings, receptions or other events at times that conflict with substantive programming or social events at AFPM meetings without express written permission of AFPM.

Failure to abide by the Code may result, for the first offense, in informal censure of a company or individual by the AFPM Executive Committee. If violations of the Code continue after such an informal censure, a company may be subject to expulsion from AFPM, or an individual to exclusion from participation in AFPM activities, by the Board of Directors.
