The European Commission’s New Merger Referral Policy: Journal Artikel

A Creative Reform or an Unnecessary End to ‘Brightline’ Jurisdictional Rules?

Nicholas Levy, Andris Rimsa, Bianca Buzatu

European Competition and Regulatory Law Review, Jahrgang 5 (2021), Ausgabe 4, Seite 364 - 379

In March 2021, in an effort to secure jurisdiction over transactions that might otherwise escape review under EU and national merger control rules, the European Commission (EC) published guidance encouraging Member State competition authorities to ask the EC to examine potentially anti-competitive concentrations that fall below national merger control thresholds. To date, in a decision that is under appeal to the General Court, the EC’s new guidance has been applied only once to refer the Illumina/Grail transaction to the EC. More generally, the EC’s new guidance has proven controversial, revealing divergences between certain Member State antitrust agencies and the EC. Keywords: merger notification thresholds, EU Merger Regulation, killer acquisitions, interagency coordination
