In July 1998, the SA Law Commission's (SALC) Project Committee on International Commercial Arbitration recommended, among other matters, that
- a clear distinction be drawn between the needs of parties to domestic and international arbitration proceedings and that - to this end
- South Africa should enact a separate international commercial arbitration statute, based on the 1985 UNCITRAL Model Law. Such an initiative would bring South Africa's arbitration laws and practice in line with internationally accepted standards and pave the way for South Africa to become the preferred "arbitration-friendly" centre for the resolution of cross-border business disputes in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.
