             Old Logo                                                                                             New Logo

   

The Competition and Fair Trading Commission wishes to advise all stakeholders that it has adopted a New Logo.

The new logo has two faces facing each other, representing a consumer and a trader while the scale of justice in the middle represents fair trading and just competition.

Without doubt, the new CFTC Logo truly describes the core mandate of the Competition and Fair Trading Commission.

This now means that the old logo will no longer be in use.
