Welcome to the Competition Commission

The Competition Commission is a statutory body constituted in terms of the Competition Act, No 89 of 1998 by the Government of South Africa empowered to investigate, control and evaluate restrictive business practices, abuse of dominant positions and mergers in order to achieve equity and efficiency in the South African economy.


Commission welcomes High Court ruling

The Competition Commission notes and welcomes the decision of the South Gauteng High Court which dismissed Netcare's application with costs.

Netcare filed an application interdicting the Commission's decision to appoint KPMG as Technical Advisor, to assist in the private healthcare inquiry, based on alleged conflict of interest concerns.

The judgment vindicates the position of the Commission that parties in the health sector need to cooperate fully with the health inquiry rather than seek to derail it as in the case of Netcare.
