The paper first endeavors to analyze the limits within which competition rules can be applied to the situations where the addressees of the measures taken by a competition authority are located outside the territory of the State; and second, whether a concentration of undertakings, initiated in the firm in the third countries, could be subjected to the EU jurisdiction. In particular, the author deals with the aspect of extraterritorial effect of the Merger Control Rules of the EU, as ensconced in Reg. 139/2004.
