Competition Commission of Mauritius
The Competition Commission of Mauritius is a statutory body established in 2009 to enforce the Competition Act 2007. This Act established a competition regime in Mauritius, under which the CCM can investigate possible anticompetitive behavior by businesses. In its investigations, the CCM has considerable powers to compel businesses and others involved to provide information. If it decides that a business’s conduct is anticompetitive, it has strong powers to intervene and correct the situation. Where businesses have been found to be deliberately agreeing to fix prices or share markets, the Commission can impose fines.

It operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection. STC has been entrusted with the responsibility of importing certain essential commodities including all petroleum products and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) traded in Mauritius.
