Hong Kong Competition Commission

The Competition Commission (the Commission) is committed to promoting a competitive environment that is conducive to free flow of trade, efficiency and innovation that brings more choices and better quality and prices of goods and services to consumers.

The Commission is an independent statutory body established under the Competition Ordinance (Cap. 619) (the Ordinance) which was enacted in June 2012.

The Commission is tasked with the following functions :

- To investigate conduct that may contravene the competition rules of the Ordinance and enforce the provisions of the Ordinance;

- To promote public understanding of the value of competition and how the Ordinance promotes competition;

- To promote the adoption by undertakings carrying on business in Hong Kong of appropriate internal controls and risk management systems and to ensure their compliance with the Ordinance;

- To advise the Government on competition matters in Hong Kong and outside Hong Kong;

- To conduct market studies into matters affecting competition in markets in Hong Kong; and
