Hong Kong Arbitration Update: Revised HKIAC Rules Published
20 June 2013
In our arbitration update "New Rules, New Regime" published in April, we discussed the proposed amendments to the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre Administered Arbitration Rules (the "Proposed HKIAC Rules"), as published in January 2013. At that time, the Proposed HKIAC Rules were expected to come into effect on 1 May 2013.
On 12 June the final version of the HKIAC rules was published (the "Final HKIAC Rules"), which largely reflect the position adopted in the Proposed HKIAC Rules. However the key changes have been made.
