EU antitrust regulators will decide by June 17 whether to clear Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot maker PSA's $50 billion merger, according to a European Commission filing on Monday.

The companies announced the deal to create the world's fourth biggest car maker in December, putting under one roof the Italian company's brands such as Fiat, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Maserati and the French company's Peugeot, Opel and DS.

Fiat and PSA sought EU approval on Friday, the Commission site showed.

EU competition enforcers can approve the deal with or without conditions or open a full-scale investigation of about four months following the end of the preliminary review should they have deep concerns.
