The Competition Commission (Commission) relies on complaints and queries from the public as an important means of identifying possible contraventions of the Competition Ordinance (Ordinance). The Commission will accept complaints in any form, including those provided to the Commission:
(b) anonymously; and
(c) through an intermediary (such as a legal adviser).
A complaint or query may be made by telephone, e-mail, post, by completing an online form on the Commission’s website or in person at the Commission’s offices (by appointment only). A complaint may be submitted on behalf of more than one person or party.
For further information on the processes the Commission will use for determining what action to take in relation to a complaint, please refer to the Guideline on Complaints.
Before making a complaint, you may also wish to refer to the Commission's FAQs for common questions that other people have asked about the Ordinance and the Commission.
Where the Complainant has provided relevant contact details, the Commission will usually acknowledge receipt of the complaint promptly.
The Commission accepts complaints provided anonymously.
Section 125 of the Ordinance imposes a general obligation on the Commission to preserve the confidentiality of any confidential information provided to or obtained by the Commission, including information that relates to the identity of any person who has given information to the Commission.
The Commission will not normally disclose the Complainant’s identity, without the Complainant’s consent. In some exceptional cases however, it may be necessary to disclose the Complainant’s identity without their consent. This includes where disclosure is ordered by the courts or under section 126(1)(b) of the Ordinance where the Commission considers it necessary to make a disclosure in the performance of its functions or in carrying into effect or doing anything authorised by the Ordinance.
Please call the Commission at +852 3462 2118 from 9.00am to 1.00pm and 2.00pm to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Saturday, Sunday and public holidays). If your call is placed in a queue or you call outside these hours, you will be given the option of leaving a message for the Commission to return your call.
