Australian Consumer and Competition Commission Has Issued its Draft Merger Guidelines 2008 for Public Comment
Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
Details are here. One important item that the press release mentions is the following,"The Draft Merger Guidelines 2008 do not represent a new approach by the ACCC. The competition test is the same and analysis of the market and merger factors remains a vital element in merger assessment. Rather, they are a better reflection, and more cogent articulation, of the ACCC's current practice in relation to merger analysis."
