Practical Information for Mergers

Due to the closure of DG Competition’s building in Brussels between 03/01/2023 and 06/01/2023, the hand delivery of documents or other materials for merger cases will not be possible during that period. All electronic submissions will, however, continue to be processed as usual.

Special measures due to Coronavirus

Submission of documents:

  • eTrustEx (Trusted Document Exchange) ensures secure transmission of documents between DG Competition and external stakeholders
  • eRFI (electronic Request for Information) supports the process of requesting information from market participants and collecting responses in the context of market investigations

Format of notifications and reasoned submissions:

Corrigendum to the Communication pursuant to Articles 3(2), 6(2), 13(3), 20(1), 20(1a) and 23(4) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 802/2004. Official Journal C 270, 19.8.2014, p. 9–10
