The Asia-Pacific Antitrust Review 2014

Malaysia: MyCC

12 February 2014

With the Competition Act 2010 fully in force, the MyCC has been busy in its investigative role. 2013 saw a couple of proposed decisions being made, several exemption applications being processed and advisory opinions being given. While the Commission has grown in size and responsibilities, the challenges nevertheless remain, ie, high expectations that the MyCC will bring about overnight changes and quick decisions on complaints lodged, dismantle anti-competitive policies and expect guilds or associations to toe the line immediately.
