Shaping markets through competition and economic regulation is at the heart of addressing the development challenges facing countries in southern Africa. The contributors to Competition Law And Economic Regulation: Addressing Market Power In Southern Africa critically assess the efficacy of the competition and economic regulation frameworks, including the impact of a number of the regional competition authorities in a range of sectors throughout southern Africa.

Featuring academics as well as practitioners in the field, the book addresses issues common to southern African countries, where markets are small and concentrated, with particularly high barriers to entry, and where the resources to enforce legislation against anti-competitive conduct are limited. What is needed, the contributors argue, is an understanding of competition and regional integration as part of an inclusive growth agenda for Africa. By examining competition and regulation in a single framework, and viewing this within the southern African experience, this volume adds new perspectives to the global competition literature.

It is an essential reference tool and will be of great interest to policymakers and regulators, as well as the rapidly growing ecosystem of legal practitioners and economists engaged in the field.

McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration (Paperback, 7th ed): P. Ramsden McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration (Paperback, 7th ed)
P. Ramsden
R922 R773 Discovery Miles 7 730 Save R149 (16%) In stock

McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts.

This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution.

This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.

The first edition of The Building Contract by the late Eyvind Finsen was published in 1999 and followed on the 1991 publication of The New Building Contract. The earlier book was an introduction to the new Joint Buildings Contract Committee (JBCC) contract documents, whereas the later book provided commentary on the JBCC building agreements, which by then were widely used in the construction industry.

This third edition, now named Finsen’s The Building Contract, has been revised and updated. It covers the latest Principal Building Agreement (PBA) and the Nominated/Selected Subcontract Agreement (NSSA), as well as the Minor Works Agreement (MWA), and the various contract data documents and the associated forms and certificates that are used with these agreements. The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has agreed that South African organs of state may use the private sector agreement. Accordingly, this agreement has been amended in consultation with the National Department of Public Works to cater for certain of the State’s requirements.

Finsen’s book is widely recognised as a reference work in the construction industry. This updated edition will be of significant value to building professionals as well as to client bodies, attorneys and advocates who specialise in resolving construction disputes. It is also intended for students who aim to enter these fields. This book aims to equip its readers with the knowledge needed to avoid contractual disputes.

Hoteliers, restaurateurs, licensees and catering managers will, in the course of their work, enter into many legal relationships with other parties whilst at the same time being required to adhere to all of the statutory laws that apply to their business. A sound knowledge of the law is therefore important to the professional owner or manager, as are knowledge of business management and the fundamental skills of the profession.

Public procurement law governs the acquisition of the goods and services that a state needs to fulfil its public functions. This area of law has seen tremendous development globally in recent years, and Africa is no exception. In many African countries there have been sweeping reforms in the regulatory regimes that govern public procurement. This trend shows no signs of slowing down. On the African continent, public procurement law is closely tied to pressing policy issues: from development plans to donor aid and international lending, to anti-corruption agendas and capacity challenges, to public finance management, enforceable remedies under the rule of law, and human rights. This book investigates a number of these themes to foster an understanding of public procurement law in the context of contemporary Africa. The authors of this collection, Public Procurement Regulation for 21st Century Africa, draw on their varied experience from scholarship, government, international bodies, NGOs and private practice to provide a range of perspectives that shed light on this vital field of law.

The Companies Act (No. 71 of 2008), as now amended by the Companies Amendment Act (No. 3 of 2011), introduced many concepts, principles and rules that were foreign to South Africa's common law. However, the new Act does not indicate clearly to what extent it replaces the common law. Corporate law for commerce students is thus a much-needed guide to the structure and fundamentals of the new company regime. Corporate law for commerce students covers three types of business venture, namely partnerships, companies and close corporations, which each carry different rights and obligations, and ultimately liabilities, for the entrepreneur. It discusses, inter alia, how to choose the right option for a specific business; the partnership concept, the establishment of a legal personality; compliance, transparency and accountability; shares, securities, stock and debt instruments; fundamental transactions, takeovers and offers; business rescue and compromise with creditors; and termination and dissolution - all within the framework of the new Companies Act and the common law. It includes figures, tables and mind maps to clarify each topic, and provides assessments at the end of each chapter. Corporate law for commerce students is aimed both at students who are studying Commercial Law, Business Entities or Corporate Law and practising accountants and auditors.

This topical book offers an in-depth analysis of the recent implementation of the Public Procurement Directive, based on the experiences of 12 Member States including France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom. The contributions from first-class public procurement law experts offer an informed and comparative analysis of the recent implementation of the Public Procurement Directive, as well as focusing on so-called gold-plating (overimplementation) and issues where the legality of the implemented legislation is questionable. Vitally, the chapters also consider national preparatory works as a legal source and their interesting role in the implementation of the Directive including its Preamble. Attention is also given to the implementation of some of the most important novelties in the Directive such as the exclusion grounds, the competitive procedure with negotiation and contract changes. Modernising Public Procurement will be important reading for practitioners and civil servants involved in the implementation of public procurement law. Academics, researchers, politicians, judges and members of complaints boards in the field of public procurement law will also find this book a stimulating read.

Collective Bargaining In South Africa - Past, Present And Future?  (Paperback): Darcy Du Toit Collective Bargaining In South Africa - Past, Present And Future? (Paperback)
Darcy Du Toit
R532 Discovery Miles 5 320 Ships in 4 - 8 working days

This book provides a thorough analysis of the state of collective bargaining in South Africa today. Drawing on extensive empirical research, it examines the processes which have shaped the collective bargaining system, as well as identifying some crucial questions hanging over its future. Collective bargaining is approached from legal, sociological, economic and historical perspectives, thereby giving a multifaceted view of the system.

While the country's unique history may have left trade unions and bargaining councils in a position of relative strength, it is argued that global market forces - manifested in trends towards non-standard employment and other changes in the job market undermining traditional bargaining relationships - pose a serious threat to these institutions. Trade unionists acknowledge that new strategies are needed to meet these challenges, and many employers see the value of stable bargaining relationships.

The book considers empirical data and initiatives developed by trade unions and employers around the world and raises some policy options that might be considered in seeking a way forward. Ultimately it is up to the parties to debate and negotiate improvements to the legal institutions within which collective bargaining takes place. This book will go a long way to stimulating and informing the debate.

Reformation or Deformation of the EU Public Procurement Rules (Hardcover): Grith S. Olykke, Albert Sanchez Graells Reformation or Deformation of the EU Public Procurement Rules (Hardcover)
Grith S. Olykke, Albert Sanchez Graells
R3,507 Discovery Miles 35 070 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Using an innovative 'law and political science' methodology, this timely book carries out a critical assessment of the reform of the EU public procurement rules. It provides a rich account of the policy directions and the spaces for national regulatory decisions in the transposition of the 2014 Public Procurement Package, as well as areas of uncertainty and indications on how to interpret the rules in order to make them operational in practice. Most EU law research focuses on the content of rules and the impact of case law on their interpretation and application. It rarely discusses how the CJEU's case law influences the creation of new rules, or the way EU law-makers enact them - issues which, conversely, are a staple for political scientists. By blending both approaches this book finds that political science provides a useful framework to describe the law-making process and shows that the influence of the CJEU was significant. Though the specific case studies identify many reforms, the ultimate assessment is that EU public procurement law was deformed. Offering a clear contribution to the emerging scholarship on 'flexible' EU law-making, this book's novel methodology will appeal to scholars and students of both law and political science. Law- and policy-makers as well as legal practitioners will also find its practical approach compelling.
