AFS Anti-Trust Policy


It is the policy of the American Filtration and Separations Society to conduct its operations, conferences, and meetings in strict compliance with the anti-trust laws of the United States. This policy prohibits any discussions which, in reality, or appearance, constitute or imply an agreement or understanding concerning:


  • Prices, discounts, or terms and conditions of sale,
  • Profits, profit margin, cost data, or market share,
  • Allocation, selection, rejection or termination of customers or suppliers,
  • Restricting the territory or markets in which a company may resell products,
  • Any matter which is inconsistent with the proposition that each manufacturer, wholesaler, and distributor must exercise its independent business judgment in pricing its services or products, dealing with its customers and suppliers, and choosing markets in which it will compete.
