If you wish to request Gafta to initiate the defaulter process as per rule 24.1 of the Gafta 125 rules please complete the request form, signed by a company Director. Send the signed, completed form to arbitration@gafta.com. Please ensure a full, correct and current physical address is provided as well as e-mail addresses for the defaulting party.

The Gafta defaulter process comprises of two standard form letters which are sent to the party apparently in default with copy to the reporting party. If no settlement is informed to Gafta after the first letter has been sent then a second letter will be sent 6-8 weeks later. If no settlement is made after the second letter then Gafta will request confirmation from the reporting party to bring the name of the party in default to the Gafta Council to seek their approval. Once Council has approved the posting a circular will be sent to all Gafta members informing them of the name and address of the party in default and the Gafta website will be updated to reflect the default.
