Google has submitted details to the European Commission of how it intends to amend its price comparison service, Google Shopping, to comply with an antitrust decision earlier this summer. The proposals were submitted yesterday.

A spokesperson for the Commission confirmed it had received information from Google pertaining to complying with the ruling.

The company has until the end of September to end its censured conduct or risk a regime of additional daily fines that would be backdated to the date of non-compliance.

The Commission has not published Google’s proposals for complying with the ruling — and TechCrunch understands there is no official intention to make the proposals public.

"It is Google’s sole responsibility to ensure compliance with the Commission antitrust decision. The Commission’s role is to monitor Google’s compliance. In this context the Commission can confirm that, as required by the Commission decision, it has received information from Google on how the company intends to ensure compliance with the Commission decision by the set deadline. Furthermore, Google will continue to be under an obligation to keep the Commission informed of its actions by submitting periodic reports," the EC spokesperson told us.
