In brief

The Competition Commission in South Africa recently published a Practice Note on the Promotion of Competition and Inclusion in Supplier Panels of Banks and Insurers. This Note is intended to guide Banks and Insurers on the best practices and pro-competitive principles that can be applied when appointing suppliers to Supplier Panels (including conveyancing and automotive panels). Banks and Insurers should take measures to comply with this guidance, as non-compliance could attract enforcement action. Sphesihle Nxumalo, Associate, and Jarryd Hartley, Candidate Attorney, in the Antitrust & Competition Practice in Johannesburg, outline the details contained in this Note.
