Institutional arbitration under the AIAC Arbitration Rules

The AIAC takes pride in providing alternative dispute resolution (ADR) users with unrivalled quality of service, flexibility and effectiveness. With over 40 years of experience and expertise, we strive to ensure that your ADR matters administered by our secretariat are conclusively resolved by awards that are enforceable, whilst guarded by strict confidentiality and neutrality standards that are expected of an international arbitration institution of our stature.

All ADR proceedings administered by the AIAC are governed by a comprehensive set of rules, guidelines and protocols that are in accordance with the latest international best practices and standards for ADR. As a testament to its front-line stance in paving the way for innovation in ADR, the AIAC has expanded its rules to cater to the growing demands of the global business community with the introduction of the AIAC Arbitration Rules (revised in 2021), the AIAC i-Arbitration Rules, the AIAC Fast Track Rules and the AIAC Mediation Rules. These rules are kept under constant revision and are continually updated to ensure relevance with commercial practicalities and expectations.

The AIAC also publishes guides and circulars to facilitate the use of and understanding of its rules, serving as a guideline to appointed neutrals in their conduct of arbitration proceedings. These publications are produced in response to requests from our stakeholders in the ADR community, thus ensuring continuous feedback that is vital for the AIAC as a leading international arbitration institution.
