  5. DISPUTE RESOLUTION REVIEW | SOUTH AFRICA

Published Date: April 11, 2017

The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 40 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries. This ninth edition follows the pattern of previous editions where leading practitioners in each jurisdiction set out an easily accessible guide to the key aspects of each jurisdiction’s dispute resolution rules and practice, and developments over the past 12 months. The South African Chapter has been authored by Jac Marais, Andrew Molver and Renée Nienaber from Adams & Adams.

Key developments in South Africa over the past year followed global trends and included:

  • Clarification of the effect of a pending application for a restraining order and the scope of issues capable of referral to court in terms of Section 20(1) of the Arbitration Act;
  • Further progress towards more active judicial management of the dispute resolution process;
  • Approval of the International Arbitration Bill; and
  • The Community Schemes Ombud Services Act coming into effect.
