ASTA’s Arbitration Program and ASTA Contracts

ASTA offers arbitration for disputes that may arise in transactions using an ASTA contract.

The ASTA Arbitration Program provides ASTA members an opportunity to resolve conflicts arising from business transactions provided that certain conditions are met.

ASTA’s arbitration process is overseen by the Arbitration Board which is elected annually by the ASTA membership. To participate in an arbitration conducted under the ASTA Arbitration Program, at least one party must be a member in good standing of the American Spice Trade Association.

As a benefit to ASTA members doing business in the spice trade, ASTA has developed sample contracts for use in the buying and selling of spice. ASTA contracts are available for companies to use in the trading of spices. You can download ASTA contracts here.
