  • Current decided cases: how to search for cases within the last 60 days;


  • Archived decided cases: how to search for cases older than 60 days;


  • Hearings: how to search by case type, keyword or month;


  • Media releases: how to search for media releases by case type, keyword or date;


  • Pending cases: how to search for pending cases by keyword, date or case type i.e. mergers, interlocutory applications etc. and


  • Other court judgments: how to search for judgments handed down in the Competition Appeal Court, the High Court, the Supreme Court of Appeal and the Constitutional Court.

The Tribunal launched its revamped website in April this year, offering legal practitioners, journalists, companies and anyone interested in the Tribunal’s work, access to the very latest breaking news and case information. Website users can view and download a treasure trove of documentation (virtual case files) directly sourced from the Tribunal’s primary portal for case information.


Users can also “subscribe to an event” which means they will receive notifications when a specific case is updated and when documents relating to the case are uploaded to the website. Visitors can also subscribe to receive media releases, newsletters and/or the Tribunal’s Annual Report.
