Memoranda of Understanding

In terms of Section 67, the Commission is under obligation to cooperate with sectoral regulators which has competition powers. The Commission has thus far concluded Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) with the Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN), Namibia Ports Authority (Namport) and the Bank of Namibia (BoN). It should be noted that the MOUs are not aimed at sharing competition responsibilities. It is rather aimed at formalizing cooperation to improve efficiency and avoid duplication of processes.
