Our Rules

In this section, we provide you with the text of rules under which you can carry on an arbitration at SIAC.

The SIAC Rules (6th Edition, 1 August 2016) ("SIAC Rules 2016") are the primary rules of arbitration at the SIAC and have come into force on 1 August 2016. The SIAC Rules 2016 supersede the SIAC Rules (5th Edition, 1 April 2013), SIAC Rules (4th Edition, 1 July 2010) and SIAC Rules (3rd Edition, 1 July 2007).

The first edition of the Investment Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (1st Edition, 1 January 2017) (SIAC IA Rules 2017) is a specialised set of rules to address the unique issues present in the conduct of international investment arbitration. The SIAC IA Rules 2017 are effective as from 1 January 2017.

Parties can also adopt the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules (as revised in 2010) for the conduct of arbitration at SIAC. While these Rules are essentially designed for the ad hoc form of arbitration, parties can, with special provision, enjoy the benefit of institutional administration of the arbitration from SIAC. The Guide to UNCITRAL Rules Arbitration provides a fuller explanation of how this can be achieved.

The SIAC SGX-DT Arbitration Rules (1st Edition, 1 July 2005) and the SIAC SGX-DC Arbitration Rules (1st Edition, 27 March 2006) are designed for the conduct of expedited arbitration for disputes arising from derivative trading and derivative clearing respectively.
