On 20 April 2023, the European Commission (the “Commission”) adopted a package of measures to simplify the merger control process for transactions that do not raise competition concerns (the “New Package”) under the EU Merger Regulation.

The New Package is the result of an evaluation launched by the Commission in 2016 with the purpose of evaluating the procedural and jurisdictional aspects of the existing EU merger control procedures. The purpose of the New Package is to make the EU merger control procedures more focused and effective.

The New Package will (i) expand and/or clarify which cases that qualifies for the simplified procedure, (ii) streamline the review process under the simplified procedure, (iii) streamline the review of cases under the normal procedure, and (iv) introduce an electronic system for notifications.
