Competition law is developing dynamically in Malaysia. This book provides a useful analysis and explanation of the regulatory scheme, discussing the various powers and functions of the competition regulator as well as the enforcement and procedural aspects of Malaysian competition law. The second edition of this book discusses the more recent developments surrounding the Competition Act 2010 as well as the competition regime under various sectoral regulations.
This book provides the readers with better understanding and clarity on the application of competition law and the development of legal jurisprudence on competition by analysing recent decisions and judgments issued by the competition authorities. To deepen the analysis and discussion, increased reference has been made to the legal jurisprudence, case law and established competition law practices found in various relevant jurisdictions particularly the EU and the UK.
Written by authors with good knowledge of competition regulation, this substantially revised new edition provides invaluable guidance to officers of the Malaysian Competition Commission, judges, lawyers, in-house counsel, business owners, academics and students.
