The practice of competition law in Singapore is relatively new. The Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) was established under the Competition Act on 1 January 2005 and the new merger regime only came into force on 1 July 2007, allowing parties to notify the commission of any proposed merger and to receive a decision as to whether it would infringe section 54 of the Competition Act. A consequence of the relative infancy of the competition regime is a small pool of firms and individuals practising in the area. While firms wait to see the levels of enforcement they will encounter, there are few lawyers dedicating 100 per cent of their time to competition matters.
