Finland's New Merger Control Rules

Merger control began in Finland in 1998. The rules originally applied were repealed, and new provisions were introduced in Chapter 4 of the Competition Act (948/2011). The new Competition Act entered into force in Finland on 1 November 2011. It introduces a number of amendments to merger control provisions aimed at harmonizing the Finnish rules with EU rules.
