Exchange rates to calculate the turnover

Archive: past notices and review process 

The Consolidated Jurisdictional Notice replaces the previous four jurisdictional Notices, all adopted by the Commission in 1998 under the previous Merger Regulation: Council Regulation No. 4064/89. These are :

(i) the Notice on the concept of concentration (OJ C 66, 02.03.1998, p. 5),

(ii) the Notice on the concept of full-function joint ventures (OJ C 66, 02.03.1998, p.1),

(iii) the Notice on the concept of undertakings concerned (OJ C 66, 02.03.1998, p.14) and

(iv) the Notice on calculation of turnover (OJ C 66, 02.03.1998, p.25).

The new consolidated Notice therefore covers a wide range of issues of jurisdiction relevant for establishing the Commission's competence under the new Merger Regulation.

A draft of the notice was open for comments from the public until 1 December 2006 . The comments received can be found below.
