Foreign-to-Foreign Mergers: The German Guidance, a Blueprint for a European Reform?

Andreas Bardong, Bundeskartellamt asks Foreign-to-Foreign Mergers: The German Guidance, a Blueprint for a European Reform?

ABSTRACT: The European Commission's white paper on more effective merger control has raised issues regarding the obligation to notify mergers that do not have any effect in the European Economic Area (EEA). These issues could probably be solved on the basis of the approach adopted by the German Competition Authority in a new guidance document on domestic effects. This new document offers safe harbours, guidance for a case-by-case assessment, hypothetical case examples, a flowchart, and a pragmatic procedural shortcut in the event that domestic effects issues should require a disproportionate amount of fact-finding.
