Competition Authority offers new electronic notification functionalities

​From today, the Competition Authority is offering new functionalities in the Electronic Notification System for Merger Operations (SNEOC).

Since 1 July 2009, when SNEOC came into operation, it has been possible to notify the Authority of mergers by electronic means and, in addition, carry out a series of other interactions associated with the merger control procedure.

With the development now being put into operation, SNEOC allows notifying enterprises to:

  • Upload multiple documents simultaneously, thus facilitating the submission of notifications;
  • Submit, online, replies to requests for information;
  • Submit, online, requests for access to the case and a response, by the same means.

 

The Competition Authority hopes that the new functionalities will contribute to greater efficiency and swiftness in merger control.

SNEOC can be accessed through the CA’s institutional portal, at www.concorrencia.pt.
