The following Competition guidance note Produced in partnership with Sorainen provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A conversation with Maksim Salahub, partner, and Viktoryia Mikhnevich, senior associate in the Minsk office of regional law firm Sorainen, on the key issues on merger control in Belarus.
NOTE—to see whether notification thresholds in Belarus and throughout the world are met, see Where to Notify.
Note—in some languages, Belarus can be known as 'White Russia'. For example, Belarus can be known as 'Weiẞrussland' in German, although officially it is known as Belarus. Likewise, Belarus is known as 'Wit-Rusland' in Dutch
In the beginning of 2018 a new version of the Law on Countering Monopolistic Activity and Development of Competition (the 'Law') was adopted–this entered into force on 3 August 2018 replaced the previous law (which had entered into force on 1 July 2014). The new version of the Law retained the essential provisions of the previous law and introduced changes to the grounds and the notification thresholds for merger clearance procedure (with the value of the thresholds doubling and applying to either the target or the acquirer, as well as introducing an additional threshold so that a notification is required where either party holds a dominant position).
