The Russian Federal Anti-Monopoly Service has proposed amendments to its Trade Act (antitrust law). According to its press release:
Currently FAS Russia has developed some amendments to the Trade Act, changing the market
dominance threshold for trading organizations from 35% to 15%. Also it will introduce special
collective dominance thresholds.
I am unaware of any country with a dominance threshold as low as 15 percent. Is this a new low for what a "dominant" firm might be?
