TO THE "DIGEST OF BUSINESS REVIEWS"
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Department of Justice's Antitrust Division today released the 1996 annual supplement and revised indexes to the "Digest of Business Reviews."
The original Digest, published in 1983, contained summaries of letters issued by the Antitrust Division from 1968 to 1982 under its Business Review procedure. Supplements are issued on an annual basis.
Under the Business Review procedure, a firm describes proposed business activity to the Antitrust Division and receives a letter stating whether the Division would challenge the action as a violation of the federal antitrust laws.
The updated indexes permit research of all Business Review letters issued since 1968 according to topic, commodity or service involved, and the name of the requesting party.
Copies of the Digest, supplements, revised indexes, and Business Review letters are available from the Legal Procedures Unit of the Antitrust Division, Department of Justice, Suite 215 Liberty Place, 325 7th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20004 (telephone: 202-514-2481).
