The Commission has launched a public consultation on its draft Remedies Notice that would clarify its policy regarding remedies to anticompetitive mergers and acquisitions. Such remedies are ordinarily proposed by the parties to a transaction to resolve antitrust issues identified by the Commission during its merger control inquiry. The Remedies Notice would alter the current guidelines (dating from 2001) in light of an extensive Commission study on merger remedies, recent case law of the European Courts and the Commission’s experience enforcing the 2004 Merger Regulation. The Remedies Notice is expected to be adopted in late 2007.
