In December 2014 Court Annexed Mediation was introduced in 12 Magistrates Courts pilot sites (9 in the Gauteng Province and 3 in the North West Province) pursuant to the Court Mediation Rules published in the Government Notice 38164 of 31 October 2014.

Based on the lessons and experiences learnt from the pilot, the Court Annexed Mediation services will, in 2018 and from the date that will be determined by the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services by Notice in the Gazette during March 2018, be extended to the Regional Courts in the four (4) provinces, namely, Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and North West.

Applications from suitably qualified persons to be enlisted in the Panel of Mediators under the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development are invited to provide mediation services for the adjudication of civil disputes.

(The date of the extension of the mediation services to the Regional Divisions of the outstanding provinces will be announced later in 2018).

Applicants must send applications completed on the prescribed form together with all supporting documents to Private Bag X81, Pretoria, 0001 or courier to 329 Pretorius Street, Momentum building, Pretoria, for the attention of Ms Stella Maphoso.
