Convergence between competition and data protection law: a South African perspective

Koornhof, Pieter and Pistorius, Tana (2018). Convergence between competition and data protection law: a South African perspective. International Data Privacy Law, 8 (3), pp. 277-283.

Abstract

A brief overview of the respective frameworks for competition and data protection law in South Africa is provided before providing examples of where convergence between the two occurs. An argument is made that it would be best for the competition authorities and information regulator to enter into a formal cooperation agreement in order to best manage this in order to ensure that the potential anti-competitive uses of data are best regulated while avoiding an unnecessary layer of additional regulation for data processors.
