South Africa: Two Bills

The new Competition Law Amendment Bill, expected to be presented to Cabinet soon, could include provisions that criminalise the misconduct of directors, holding them personally responsible if they engage in anti-competitive behaviour, says a Financial Mail report (available on subscription)

The latest version of the Consumer Protection Bill can be located here. The CPB is intended to be a Bill of Rights for consumers in the form of compliance codes for business and an enhanced enforcement tool to protect the rights of consumers.
