According to the legislation on competition, the Antimonopoly Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan is the authorized body in the field of competition in commodity and financial markets. In this regard, when this kind of question arises, business entities can contact the Antimonopoly Committee and its territorial departments for further study of this issue.

I bought a monopoly product on the stock exchange (for example, cement). According to the rules, I can pick up the product from the factory within 10 days.

If the buyer applies to the Antimonopoly Committee, the monopolist will receive an order for immediate execution of the contract regarding the shipment of goods and will face a fine in accordance with article 178 Of the code of administrative responsibility.
