Zimbabwe publishes draft guidelines on horizontal agreements

The Competition and Tariff Commission (CTC) has recently published Guidelines on Horizontal Agreements 2021 (Guidelines) which provide general guidance on the implementation of the Zimbabwean Competition Act, Chapter 14:28 (Zimbabwean Competition Act) as it relates to horizontal agreements. Although not yet in force, and pending the approval of the Board of Commissioners, broadly, the Guidelines seek to clarify the CTC’s approach in assessing horizontal agreements which by object or effect restrict competition. The CTC noted the “need for transparency and predictability” as the basis for publishing the Guidelines.

The Guidelines highlights certain key considerations and developments, which are briefly discussed below.
