The OFT has accepted a divestment package from SRCL and Cliniserve Limited to address competition concerns arising from SRCL's acquisition of Cliniserve. SRCL provides waste management services to medical and other sectors throughout England and Wales. Cliniserve provides the same service, mainly for the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors. Cliniserve has agreed to sell its medical waste treatment plant in Littlehampton to Ethos Recycling Limited. The divestment package includes an agreement, approved by the OFT, in which SRCL will continue to provide waste for disposal at the newly-acquired Littlehampton site for a specified period of time while Ethos establishes its new business. As a result of this agreement, the merger will not be referred to the Competition Commission.
