"to conduct a preliminary hearing regarding the practice of selling below cost"
Explanation: In a legal context, "prevenir" means "to hold a preliminary hearing." Selling products below cost (that is, for less than the seller paid for the products, or for less than the investment that the seller made in manufacturing the products) is often a tactic used in unfair business competition; therefore, I strongly suspect that your document deals with a legal investigation into unfair business practices; hence the English translation suggested above. -- Hope this helps!
