Further to our January update (available here), the Competition Commission has extended the deadline for public comment on the:
- Draft Guidelines for the Determination of Administrative Penalties for Prohibited Practices from 30 January 2015 to 16 February 2015; and
- Draft Guidelines for the Assessment of Public Interest Provisions in Merger Regulation from 23 February to 5 March 2015.
Related to the public interest merger guidelines, the Centre for Competition, Regulation and Economic Development (CCRED) recently hosted a discussion platform on the public interest provisions in merger regulation. To follow the insights from the discussion follow @CCRED_UJ on twitter #CCREDplatforms.
