About Us

The Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is a statutory body set up to regulate prices, access to infrastructure services and other matters in relation to regulated industries and to investigate competitive neutrality complaints and government-regulated activities. We also have responsibility for licensing utility services and ensuring compliance with licence conditions.

Our objectives are defined in two principal Acts:
