AFSA resolves disputes. The Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa is the national leader in all types of appropriate dispute resolution. Founded in 1996, AFSA is a joint venture between organised business, the legal and accounting professions.

AFSA is based in Sandton, with branches in a number of major centres throughout South Africa, and aims to provide a one-stop dispute resolution service. It offers arbitrations, mediations and a fully administered dispute resolution service in comfortable surroundings. AFSA maintains panels of experts and offers disputants a choice of rules depending on the size and complexity of the matter. ADRASA (The Alternative Dispute Resolution Association of South Africa) is a wholly owned subsidiary of AFSA.

AFSA provides an Advanced Certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution in conjunction with the University of Pretoria.

AFSA International, a newly created specialist division of AFSA, will now administer all cross-border disputes except for China-Africa disputes.

The growth in the number of international cases and the specialised needs in case administration of international matters have necessitated the creation of a separate international division named AFSA International.

The Department of Communications has recently renewed AFSA's national accreditation to provide arbitration services for domain name disputes.
