On 18 April, China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) introduced a trial framework for the notification of simple concentrations or mergers. The Guidelines on the Notification of Simple Cases of Concentrations of Undertakings (Simplified Notification Guidelines) establish a procedural structure for the notification and assessment of transactions falling within MOFCOM’s Interim Provisions on the Standards that Apply to Simple Cases of Concentrations of Undertakings (Simple Cases Classification Provisions).
