Cooperation with EU National Competition Authorities in merger control

The Heads of European national competition authorities ("NCAs") and the European Commission have set up a Merger Working Group to foster increased consistency, convergence and cooperation among EU merger jurisdictions.

ESA and EFTA states have a right to be present in the Advisory Committee when there is a "mixed case" as defined in Article 2 Protocol 24 to the EEA Agreement (turnover related – more than 25 % of total turnover in the territory of the EFTA states - or effect on the markets of the EFTA states). ESA and EFTA states do not have a right to vote, but can express a "view" on the case. These “views” are published on EFTA Surveillance Authority website.
