The CMA has imposed penalties of £25,000 and £30,000 on Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) for the failure to provide, without reasonable excuse, complete responses to two sets of statutory information requests. These failures resulted in 189 documents, which included a significant amount of information relevant to the CMA's Phase 2 Amazon/Deliveroo merger investigation, being produced after the initial deadline. These penalties, each of which is subject to the statutory maximum of £30,000, have been imposed under section 110 of the Enterprise Act 2002. Although Amazon did ultimately provide all of the information required, the CMA considers that Amazon's behaviour caused unnecessary delays to the CMA's investigation, with some documents being provided almost two months late within the course of a six-month investigation.
