ISLAMABAD: The Competition Commission of Pakistan on Tuesday launched an ‘Online Merger Filing System’ to facilitate stakeholders in submitting pre-merger applications electronically.
The online merger filing system has been launched as part of an initiative undertaken by CCP to automate its systems and procedures as a step towards creating a paperless environment. Undertakings can now submit pre-merger applications online as well as in print form.
The online system helps all undertakings to submit the required documents electronically using a pre-defined format through an online software application provided by CCP. Through this system, an undertaking can file complete pre-merger application online and without any hassle.
In order to ensure safety of the documentation, the system uses secure certificates to ensure that all communications between CCP and the concerned undertaking is confidential.
This online merger filing system not only aids to expedite the application process, but the undertakings can also easily trace the status of their applications online, CCP said.
