CCP Conversations: Evolving Merger Guidelines
Merger guidelines play a key role in providing clarity about approaches for competition authorities' evaluation of mergers across the the European Union, UK and US. Emerging from the current debate about standards of proof for merger challenges, the content of merger guidelines is now open for question. An ongoing public enquiry on US merger guidelines addresses 15 different topics. Meanwhile, the UK merger guidelines were updated in 2021 and the European Commission guidelines, in contrast, have remained unchanged since 2004. What are the elements of merger guidelines under review, what changes might be made, and in what sense would changes be appropriate? This Conversation offers an opportunity to hear a US perspective from a key participant in their policy debate - and to compare transatlantic thinking.
