Privatization in Tanzania has led to the enactment of regulatory laws and creation of regulatory bodies in areas such as telecommunications, broadcasting, water and energy, transportation, banking and many other areas. Compliance with the regulatory requirements is becoming more complex and costly. Investigations by various authorities and enforcement are increasingly frequent and more aggressive.
