Afsa Arbitration Agreement

At the request of a party, the ARBITRE may order the secretariat to designate a person from its legal fee panel to tax all invoices relating to the arbitration fee decision, and each of these persons will tax the bill on the same basis and the same rate, as if they were a tax professional acting under Rule 70 of the High Court. The ARBITRE orders the party to pay the named person`s costs and then include in its allowance the amount thus imposed, which is then part of its distinction. With the effect of the New York agreement, the law provides the legal framework for the implementation of international trade procedures in South Africa. Based on the typical UNCITRAL law, with some amendments, South Africa`s law firmly establishes itself as a competitive hub for international trade arbitrations. The law applies to all international commercial disputes that the parties are considering to be pending arbitration under an arbitration agreement. A dispute is not in a position to rule by arbitration if it is not permissible to refer the subject matter of the dispute to arbitration under South African law or if this is contrary to South African public policy. In the past, South African courts have shown great reluctance to consider the application of this exemption. Indeed, the reluctance of South African courts also applies to the enforcement of foreign arbitration awards in South Africa. 9.2 Warn the party in writing that its omission or omission may render it punishable, whether or not it is conclusive in the arbitration process, and that such a penalty premium may include the designation of solicitor and client fees or the client`s legal and self-cost fees, since these expressions are included in the court`s uniform rules.

If a party were to apply for a provisional or temporary discharge before the end of the arbitration, it may ask the arbitrator to grant such an interim decision or to grant the necessary temporary discharge, and the arbitrator has the same power to do so, as if the matter were heard by a High Court judge, unless: if such power or order cannot be exercised or issued by an arbitrator , then and only then, the parties should refer such a case to an appropriate court. Arbitration is integrated into the structure of south Africa`s trade policy settlement. The applicability of arbitration awards, the perceived benefits of industry confidentiality and expertise, and the continuous improvement of arbitration rules are important drivers. “In the event of disputes, disagreements or claims between the parties (hereafter referred to as “disputes”) with respect to this agreement, the parties seek to resolve the dispute through negotiations. This means that one party invites the other party to a meeting in writing and attempts to resolve the dispute within 7 (seven) days from the date of the written invitation. Arbitration legislation in South Africa was largely in line with the evolving needs of investors. To address this gap, the 2017 International Arbitration Act No. 15 was passed, which created a modernized arbitration framework, combined with an already effective, effective and impartial judicial system. The South African justice system is generally well equipped to assist arbitrators and refereeing users. With respect to interim measures, the law expressly provides that it is not inconsistent with an arbitration agreement that a party, before or during an arbitration proceeding, ask a court for a referral order and a court to apply for such a measure.
