The guidance explains the:
- circumstances in which the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will require Interim Measures
- form that Interim Measures will typically take
- types of derogations that the CMA is likely (or unlikely) to grant
- timing for imposing and revoking Interim Measures and granting derogations
The IEO template is used by the CMA as the basis for interim orders made by it under the Enterprise Act 2002 (as amended) in relation to completed mergers.
The derogation request template should be used by merging parties as a basis for the proposed consent letter granting the derogation that would be issued by the CMA.
