► Article Summary (done par the author): During the Covid-19 Crisis, managing the manufacture, prices, and availability of hydro-alcoholic gel, a key product in the fight against Covid-19 transmission, provides an issue to measure both the limits and resources of Compliance Law.
While the Culture of "conformity" with the Antitrust Law was insufficient to counter the surge in the issue of the prices of hydro-alcoholic gels and masks, implying the use of tools that seem the opposite of Compliance by State (such as price fixation and requisitioning), mechanisms inspired by them have been put in place to deal with other problems linked to the availability of Essential Goods in times of Health Crisis.
It remains in question whether these mechanisms should inspire the conception of stable Compliance Standards in the future.
