This Article examines the European Community Council Regulation No. 4064/89 which entered into force in September 1990. The focus of the Commission's activity has been on the definition of a concentration pursuant to article 3 and on the substantive appraisal of concentrations pursuant to article 2. On the basis of the decisions issued within the period under examination, it is possible to discern an emerging administrative practice. Additionally, initial developments of interest are apparent in other areas, such as the notification requirement, thresholds and various procedural matters.
