The Commission on Restitution of Land Rights is responsible for investigating and processing restitution claims. The Commission also develops and coordinates restitution policies and oversees restitution court cases.

The restitution programme is aimed at removing the settlement of land restitution claims under the Restitution of Land Rights Act 22 of 1994. The strategic objective of the Commission is the restitution of rights in land or awards of alternative forms of equitable redress to claimants, within Medium Term Expenditure Framework budgetary allocation.
