Spain: Merger Control

Merger control procedure in Spain is governed by the Competition Act (the LDC), 15/2007 of 3 July, which has replaced the previous 1989 Competition Act as of 1 September 2007. Royal Decree 261/2008 of 22 February develops many aspects of the LDC, inter alia, in relation to merger control matters.
