On 25 April 2022, the Malaysia Competition Commission (“MyCC”) published a consultation paper and a document setting out the salient points of MyCC’s proposed amendments (“Proposed Amendments”) to the Competition Act 2010.

The Proposed Amendments include refinements to existing provisions and new provisions including, most crucially, the introduction of a hybrid merger control regime. The hybrid merger control regime will entail a mandatory pre-notification regime for mergers that meet the prescribed threshold, and a voluntary pre-notification regime for mergers that do not meet the prescribed threshold.

This article examines the key Proposed Amendments by MyCC.
