In the past few years the competition authorities have interpreted the fundamental concepts of “control” and “part of the business” as used in the definition of a merger under the Competition Act. These judgements have provided welcome guidance, but also have implications for well-established past practices.

This second workshop on competition compliance will give you the understanding to identify merger implications attached to transactions as we will address, amongst others-
· When is a transaction a “merger” under the Competition Act?
· When must a merger be notified?
· The consequences of getting it wrong.
Who should attend: Risk and compliance officers and legal advisors.
