The much-anticipated Digital Markets Act ("DMA") is currently being discussed by EU lawmakers, while Member States are asking for a bigger role in the draft legislation and urging the EU to clarify the interaction with the bloc's competition law and national legislation. However, voices from Germany propose even more far reaching changes that would have the DMA broaden the types of transaction that are reportable to the Commission under the current EU merger control regime. This issue of Brussels à Jour looks into whether the DMA might evolve into yet another tool to close what regulators perceive as an enforcement gap with respect to "killer acquisitions".
