The National Consumer Tribunal was established in terms of the National Credit Act of 2005 (the NCA).
In September 2006, fifteen members of the Tribunal and a Chairperson were appointed by the President, thus formally establishing the National Consumer Tribunal. As at 31 March 2011, the Tribunal consisted of eleven part-time members, including the Chairperson.
The Tribunal's core activities revolve around the following:
The Tribunal is served by a core of dedicated and skilled Tribunal members who provide their skills and expertise in the adjudication of cases. Members of the Tribunal fulfil the adjudicative functions at the Tribunal on a part-time basis. While the Chairperson is appointed on a part-time basis, she is the Accounting Authority for the Tribunal and sets and oversees the strategy for the Tribunal. Tribunal members are appointed by the President of South Africa, on recommendation from the Minister of Trade and Industry.
Audit and Risk Committee and Governance Committees
The Chairperson's Advisory Committee and the Audit and Risk Committee are sub-committees advising the Chairperson on governance mattters. These committees operate by way of formal terms of reference.
The Chief Executive Officer
The Chief Executive Officer reports to the Chairperson and operationalises the Tribunal's Strategic Plan through the Business Plan and ensures that planning, reporting and monitoring processes are in line with the PFMA. The CEO manages and provides support to the Tribunal in respect of administration, financial and human resources, overseas effective and efficient financial management, and implements the corporate governance framework.
