This Article deals with two main issues. One is the division of powers between the European Economic Community and the Member States with regard to merger control after September 21, 1990. The other is the possible application, by the Commission of the European Communities or by national authorities, of Article 85 and 86 of the Treaty Establishing the European Economic Community to mergers covered by Regulation No. 4064/89. The Article casts a brief look at how the dividing line between merges and operations which do not qualify as mergers within the sense of article 3 of the Regulation will be treated in the future.
