Decoding the competition act
This event will help you decode the competition act and ensure that your business is not put at risk by a poor understanding of this important legislation.The Competition Act was passed into law in 1998 and the Competition Commission was constituted as the statutory body tasked to investigate, control and evaluate restrictive business practices, abuse of dominant positions and mergers that contravene the act. In recent years, we have seen the Competition Commission emboldened by high profile, successful cases involving many of South Africa's prominent companies including Sasol, Telkom, Shell and others. Some of the fines have been breathtakingly large and potential catastrophic for the companies involved.
In the past South African companies appeared to act only when brought before the Competition Commission, but this tactic has now become too expensive. For a long time it was thought that the only companies affected by the Competition Act were large corporates but recent rulings passed against smaller companies have proven that the Competition Act affects every business in this country. A smart business should get to know the act better and be prepared.
Qualified speakers will cover the legislation and present case studies.
