In its decision of the 6th October 2004, the European Commission has assessed the compatibility with the common market of the concentration of two firms from the nuclear industry sector, following the procedure laid down in the merger regulation. This concentration was proposed by the French company, Areva (Société de participations du Commissariat à l'Energie atomique SA) and aimed at the creation of a joint venture, by a common control of ETC (Enrichment Technology Company Limited), a British undertaking which used to be wholly controlled by the British holding, Urenco Limited.
In this case, the Commission assesses the potential effects of this concentration on competition, since it raises serious doubts about the compatibility of this operation with the common market.
In order to comment this case, we will summarise the facts at stake, examine the arguments of the commission and its conclusion. We will also have a closer look at the remedies proposed before weighing the advantages and drawbacks of the Commission's proposition.
