2018 Edition Rules for the Conduct of Arbitrations

The Association of Arbitrators (Southern Africa) NPC constantly strives to maintain the highest standards of international arbitral best practice. We therefore implemented a new set of Standard Procedure Arbitration Rules (incorporating the Restricted Representation Arbitration Rules for less complicated arbitrations where parties appear unrepresented). The 2018 Rules are closely based on the current UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules, with suitable amendments to facilitate the application thereof in the context of South African domestic and international arbitration legislation. The 2018 Standard Procedure Rules apply to the conduct of domestic and international arbitrations with effect from 1 January 2018, unless the parties agree to adopt alternative arbitration rules or the Restricted Representation Arbitration Rules.
