The National Consumer Tribunal (NCT) is an independent adjudicative entity. It derives its mandate from the National Credit Act, No. 34 of 2005 (the NCA). The mandate
was expanded to include matters arising from Consumer Protection Act, Act No. 68 of 2008 ("the CPA"). The Tribunal's mandate also includes reviewing decisions made by
the National Credit Regulator (NCR), the National Consumer Commission (NCC) and single-member panels of the Tribunal. Decisions made by a three-member panel of the Tribunal
may in turn be taken on appeal or review to the High Court.
