These are the Minutes of a Closed Workshop organized on 21 May 2015 in Brussels, Belgium and attended by a group of competition law specialists covering the majority of the EU Member States.

The Closed Workshop was entirely dedicated to the EU Private Damages Directive (“PDD”).

The exchange of views during the Closed Workshop was structured as follows. For each Chapter of the PDD a brief introduction was provided. This was then followed by an in-depth discussion of selected issues of interpretation gathered from the participating practitioners.

The Minutes adhere to the same structure. They follow the set-up of the PDD so that each section of the Minutes corresponds with a chapter of the PDD. Every section commences with a description of the general context within which the specific questions addressed during the Closed Workshop must be placed and understood. The outcome of the actual discussion of the specific questions is then provided in a Q&A format.

Given the depth of the discussions that have taken place during the Closed Workshop the Minutes provide useful and meaningful guidance on the PDD.
