BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU antitrust regulators will this month order U.S. chipmaker Broadcom <AVGO.O> to scrap its exclusivity clauses with TV and modem makers while they investigate whether this and other tactics hamper rivals, a person familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The European Commission will brief national competition agencies on Oct. 7 on its proposed interim measure before taking a formal decision and informing the company.

The EU competition enforcer opened an investigation in June and also sent a charge sheet to the company detailing why the interim measure may be necessary to avoid irreparable harm to the market.
