2015 saw a marked increase in dawn raids by the South African Competition Commission.

There were four dawn raids conducted by the Commission across the following industries:
  • fire control and protection systems companies (20 March 2015)
  • recruitment advertising agencies (23 September 2015)
  • furniture removal companies (30 September 2015)
  • liquefied petroleum gas suppliers (14 October 2015)

In the wake of the increased reliance on dawn raids by the Commission, it has become more imperative than ever that firms are aware of their rights and duties, as well as the best practices, that should apply in anticipation/response to a dawn raid.
