Damages Actions Directive
Article 3

Article 3 — Right to full compensation

  1. Member States shall ensure that any natural or legal person who has suffered harm caused by an infringement of competition law is able to claim and to obtain full compensation for that harm.
  2. Full compensation shall place a person who has suffered harm in the position in which that person would have been had the infringement of competition law not been committed. It shall therefore cover the right to compensation for actual loss and for loss of profit, plus the payment of interest.
  3. Full compensation under this Directive shall not lead to overcompensation, whether by means of punitive, multiple or other types of damages.
