Chapter in The Merger Control Review

Arntzen de Besche has written the Norwegian chapter in the fifth edition of the book The Merger Control Review.

Mergers and acquisitions (concentrations) are subject to control under Chapter 4 of the Norwegian Competition Act of 5 March 2004 No. 12 (Competition Act). More detailedprovisions on notification requirements are provided in the Regulation on notification of concentrations of 11 December 2013 No. 1466 (Regulation on Notification) andthe Regulation on Partial Exceptions from the Rule on Suspension of Concentrations of 9 March 2009 No. 0292 (Regulation on Exceptions). The Norwegian Competition Authority (NCA) has also issued best practice guidelines for merger control proceedings and guidelines on notifications of a concentration. Relevant legislation and guidelines are available in English on the NCA’s webpage.
