  • On May 1, 2004, a revised merger review law ("New Merger Regulation") and a new Regulation on the implementation of the rules on competition laid down in Articles 81 and 82 of the EC Treaty ("Regulation 1/2003") took effect in the EU. These new regulations will not change the substance of EC Competition rules, but will profoundly change the way in which they are enforced.
