Bureau knocks Bauer’s helmet claims

Hockey equipment manufacturer Bauer has agreed to stop making claims about its RE-AKT helmets that the Competition Bureau says create the impression that the helmets can protect players from concussions, in a consent agreement filed with the Competition Tribunal. The Competition Bureau alleged that Bauer did not conduct adequate and proper testing to support such performance claims. Bauer also agreed to donate $500,000 worth of equipment to a charity, implement corporate compliance programs, and pay $40,000 toward the Bureau’s investigation costs.

Bauer, for its part, denies that it claimed that its helmet is concussion-proof. Bauer also disagrees with the Bureau’s conclusion that its testing was inadequate.
