As with all government institutions, the Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) is feeling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. For two weeks now its staff have been working from home, and it has suspended receipt of merger filing notifications and most other face-to-face interactions. The initial measures were supposed to end today, 2 April. Now KPPU has announced that these measures will be extended until 6 April. Regular operations (including face-to-face interactions) are expected to resume on 7 April, subject to further evaluation of the COVID-19 situation.
