Office of Competition and Consumer Protection

Merger control

The Office clears transactions which do not lead to a significant restriction of competition. Otherwise, it forbids the consolidation. It is also possible that a merger or acquisition is cleared subject to certain terms and conditions, for example resale of a part of assets. Moreover, the Act exceptionally allows to clear a transaction leading to a significant lessening of competition if it simultaneously contributes to economic development or technical progress or has a favorable impact on the economy.
