The Competition and Tariff Commission (CTC) is an autonomous statutory body established in 2001 through the Competition Act [Chapter 14:28]
After receiving complaints from the general public, business firms, Regulators and other Government Departments, the Commission would investigate to ascertain whether there would be contravention of the Competition Act. The Competition Act [Chapter 14:28] prohibits two main types of restrictive business practices:
(i) restrictive practices that are considered using the rule-of-reason approach; and
(ii) unfair business practices that are per se prohibited.
The Commission's trade tariffs operations primarily involve giving assistance or protection to local industry through, inter alia:
(i) the raising of tariff charges on imported commodities or services that compete with commodities or services provided by the local industry,
(ii) the lowering of tariff charges on imported commodities or services that are used by the local industry
The Legal & Corporate Services Division is central to the Commission's operation. It provides internal legal serives to the Board of Commissioners and the Directorate. It also assists in the handling of competition and tariffs cases. It therefore plays the crucial role of linking the Directorate's investigative functions with the Board of Commissioners' adjudicative functions.
The Unit is responsible for the following:
a) providing research services to all Operational Divisions
b) maintaining the Commission's Database
The Commission's Finance and Administration Department provides a Financial and administrative service to other operational divisions of the Commission, which are essential for the effective undertaking of the Commission's operations.
