The Government of Tanzania amended the merger control threshold by Order of May 22, 2017, which entered into force on June 2, 2017.

Previously, a transaction was notifiable if the combined value of the merging parties' assets exceeded TZS800 million (approximately €0.3 million/US$0.4 million).

Under the new threshold, a transaction is notifiable if the combined value of the merging parties' assets or sales exceed TZS3.5 billion (approximately €1.3 million/US$1.6 million).

As it appears that the threshold may refer to the parties' worldwide sales or assets, the amendment has little practical impact in case of large, international transactions.
