FTC and DOJ Allow Electronic HSR Filings

Jun.21.2006

The Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice have announced the implementation of an electronic filing system that allows parties to a transaction to submit via the Internet premerger notification filings required by the Hart-Scott-Rodino ("HSR") Act.

Under the new system, filing parties will have three options:

  1. Parties may complete and submit the Form and all attachments in hard copy;
  2. Parties may complete the electronic version of the Form and submit the Form and all attachments electronically; or
  3. Parties may complete the electronic version of the Form and submit it electronically while submitting all documentary attachments in paper copy.

More detailed information on the electronic filing system is available at https://www.hsr.gov/.  Please let us know if you have any questions, or if we can be of further assistance.
