The South African Law Reports is the premier repository of South African

judicial jurisprudence. Published since 1947, The South African Law Reports

has an extensive network of reporters.  There is a reporter for every court,

from which judgments are received, ensuring that all reportable judgments

are covered. The judgments are carefully selected and edited by the editors

legislative references and case annotations. The editing process includes

the checking of all authority referred to in judgments where this is possible.


The flynote forms the basis of The South African Law Reports indexing

system, which has been developed over the years to save practitioners and readers valuable research time. The headnotes are carefully crafted and serve to inform the reader of legal issues decided in the judgment.

South African Ports Law Handbook


Author: Botha, RC; Vrancken, P

ISBN/ISSN: 9780702173127

First Published: 2006


The centrepiece of the Handbook is the National Ports Act 12 of 2005. The

adoption of the National Ports Act marks a new era in the development of

South African ports law. It represents the first attempt at creating a

comprehensive institutional, operational and regulatory framework for ports.

Importantly, it gives a strong signal opening South Africa’s port sector to

greater private sector participation and competition.


For the first time in South Africa, the Act specifically introduces a regime of

economic regulation in ports. The Handbook will publish in full all directives

issued by the Ports Regulator including procedural requirements for lodging

an appeal or submitting a complaint.


The Act is expected to have a far-reaching impact on the management and operation of South Africa's ports. It paves the way for a dynamic restructuring of relationships between the NPA, the maritime industry, ports users and all enterprises that use or depend on the efficient performance of our ports. Overall, the Act is expected to contribute to the rapid development of a previously neglected branch of our law.
