About the mergers registers

A merger is when a business buys another business or its assets, so it can become more efficient and innovative.

Mergers that are likely to substantially lessen competition in any market are prohibited under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

The 2 ways that merger parties can seek the ACCC’s view on a proposed merger are through an informal merger review or merger authorisation process.

We keep registers of mergers that are subject to a public informal merger review or a merger authorisation.
