DTI to host Company Law Seminar
The event scheduled for Thursday and Friday at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg is set to provide feedback on the Act’s implementation and interrogate the business rescue tools implemented by government.
Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, the seminar will also focus on how the Companies Act impacts on small businesses, mergers and acquisitions, as well as other cooperative governance issues.
This seminar will be attended by delegates from business, law practitioners, government officials and also other entities and organisations affected by the companies’ legislation.
“Feedback gathered from previous seminars has indicated that people are still battling with the implementation of certain aspects of the Act and that there is a need to engage with the public on the topical issues and related sections to flesh them out and give a proper context,” said Davies.
Speakers at the seminar will include Right Honourable Lady Justice Arden from the United Kingdom, Justice Owen Rogers from the Western Cape High Court, Judge President of the Gauteng High Court, Justice Dustan Mlambo, and various South African academics and practitioners.
DTI established entities such as the Companies Tribunal to adjudicate on company matters, Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) to implement, enforce and register businesses and the Specialist Company Law Committee (SCCL) to advise on legislation, as part of the implementation process of the Companies Act of 2008.
