In a rapidly changing global environment where there is ever increasing pressure to resolve disputes in a commercially minded and expedited manner, the progressive Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa (AFSA) Rules pave the way for international arbitral procedures that reflect both international best practice and modern trends.

The changes are a welcome addition and will undoubtedly facilitate the continued growth of South Africa's position as a reputable international arbitration seat. In this webinar, our panel of experts provide valuable insight into how arbitral parties can make practical use of three key Rules (Expedited Procedure, Emergency Arbitrator and Early Dismissals) in South Africa to ensure that disputes are resolved in a more cost-effective and more timely manner.

The panel will also share their practical experience, as well as legal and strategic insight in relation to how the new Rules have been used by other arbitral institutions such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC).
