 #624: 10-30-02 UNITED STATES AND EUROPEAN UNION ANTITRUST AGENCIES ISSUE "BEST PRACTICES" FOR COORDINATING MERGER REVIEWS
The objectives of the best practices are to enhance cooperation between the U.S. antitrust agencies and the European Commission in merger review, minimize the risk of divergent outcomes and reduce burdens on parties participating in merger investigations.

These best practices evolved from the work done by the US-EU Merger Working Group, a group of lawyers and economists from the Antitrust Division, Federal Trade Commission and the European Commission devoted to promoting convergence between the United States and the European Union on merger policy.
