ABOUT US

From 2022, the Center acts under the shortened name of the Competition Protection Center.
In 2015, the Center was privatised and became an independent, non-governmental expert consulting company specialising in antitrust regulation and competition law.
The foundation of the Competition Protection Center dates back to 2008. The Joint Stock Company "Competition Policy Development and Protection Center" was established by the Resolution of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan No.1127 dated December 02, 2008 in order to carry out analytical and scientific-applied research in the field of competition policy.
The legal form (joint-stock company) is a requirement that met the objectives of founding the Center in 2008. In terms of doing business and interacting with third parties, a joint-stock company does not differ significantly from a limited liability partnership.
In 2022 it was decided to change the focus of the Center from the development of competition policy to the use of expertise to develop a culture of fair competition and to promote of competition law.
Most of the Center's experts are former employees of the Antitrust Authority of the Republic of Kazakhstan, who have worked their way up from a junior expert to the head of a department and have been awarded the "Excellent Antitrust Service" badge
The Center's team includes professionals with degrees in economics and law
