The Swaziland Competition Commission was establish in 2007 to provide for the encouragement of competition in 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. We monitor, regulate, control and prevent acts or behaviors which are likely to adversely affect competition in the country.
Some of our functions include investigations in relation to 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.
The Competition Act No. 8, of 2007 outlines in detail the
complete charter for the Commission.
