Webinar Invitation: Insights into China’s Landmark Anti-Monopoly Law Reforms
On 24 June 2022, China’s National Peoples’ Congress approved far reaching amendments to China’s Anti-Monopoly Law (“AML“) which will become effective from 1 August 2022 (“AML Amendments“).
Alongside the AML Amendments, China’s competition regulator has published revised draft guidelines on a wide range of topics for public consultation.
This reform package will have significant consequences for the future of merger control and antitrust enforcement in China, including:
|personal liability and stricter penalties for antitrust violations;|
|increased enforcement powers;|
|revised merger control thresholds and review procedure, including broad powers to ‘stop|
|an express prohibition of hub & spoke arrangements;|
|potential exemptions/defences for certain vertical restraints, including potential exceptions|
to the prohibition of resale price maintenance;
|continued scrutiny of online platforms, with significant codification of recent enforcement|
