Mr. Nkonzo Hlatshwayo welcomes you to the Swaziland Competition Commission. SCC was established in 2007 to foster competition within Swaziland's economy by controlling anti-competitive trade practices, mergers and acquisitions, protecting consumer welfare and providing for an institutional mechanism for implementing these objectives. The commission monitors, regulates, controls and prevents acts or behaviors which are likely to adversely affect the climate for competition within the country.
Our functions include investigations associated with the conduct of business and mergers, the provision of information for the guidance of consumers regarding their rights, the publication of reports and studies regarding the operation of the Act, advising the Minister on matters relating to the Commission, and cooperating with regional and international bodies engaged in the enforcement of competition law and the promotion of a competition culture.
