Code of Practice for Competition in the Telecommunications Sector
The Competition Code aims to prevent anti-competitive behaviour and ensure transparent, fair and equitable access to infrastructure and services.
This Code distinguishes Market Players that are subject to competitive market forces from Market Players with Significant Market Power, whose conduct is not constrained adequately by competitive market forces. If a Market Player is designated as having Significant Market Power, additional regulatory requirements are imposed such as obligations to provide Infrastructure or Services to Customers, End Users or to other Market Players on reasonable, competitive, transparent, and non-discriminatory prices, terms and conditions and not limit the access of other Market Players in the regulated market.
Market Players with Significant Market Power are also required to offer any Infrastructure or Service on a wholesale basis unless waived or exempted by the Authority. Market Players with Significant Market Power will further be required to obtain the Authority's approval for the tariffs on which it offers its Infrastructure or Services.
