The Notice on Immunity from Fines and Reduction of Fines in Cartel Cases, the Leniency Notice, allows the European Commission to offer full immunity, or a reduction in the fines, that would otherwise have been imposed on a cartel member who provides information on the cartel and cooperates in any inquiry.
