- Arbitration Foundation of South Africa
Arbitration is a private judicial hearing with an outcome that binds the parties and puts an end to the dispute between them. The parties choose their arbitrator or ask AFSA to appoint a suitable person. The matter is heard privately at a time and place that is agreed upon by all parties. Parties choose a system that promises a fair and private resolution in a comfortable, purpose-built venue and in circumstances most suited to their needs. Furthermore disputants have the security of an administered system with carefully drafted Rules for Arbitration.
