ACICA Rules 2016

Following an extensive review and consultation process, the new ACICA Arbitration Rules and Expedited Arbitration Rules were formally approved and adopted by the ACICA Board in November 2015. The new Arbitration Rules and Expedited Arbitration rules came into effect on 1 January 2016.

ACICA revised its Rules to reflect developments in international arbitration. The new Rules build on ACICA’s established practice of providing an effective, efficient and fair arbitral process. Developments of note include provisions on consolidation and joinder and the conduct of legal representatives, along with the introduction of an expedited procedure for lower value or urgent matters commenced under the Arbitration Rules. The amendments improve the existing Rules and strengthen ACICA’s position as a leading provider of international arbitration services in the Asia Pacific region.
