South China International Arbitration Center (Hong Kong) Arbitration Rules Come into Force

South China International Arbitration Center (Hong Kong) (SCIAHK) is a new Hong Kong registered arbitral institution. It is affiliated to the Shenzhen-based Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration (SCIA, also known as South China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission), but operates as an independent institution. SCIAHK’s Board recently approved the South China International Arbitration Center (Hong Kong) Arbitration Rules (the Rules), which came into force on 1 May 2022.

The most notable feature of the Rules is that they were drafted based on, and follow the structure and numbering of, the 2013 UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules. Hence, they will be a familiar document to many users. Appendix 5 to the Rules sets out a list of modifications to the 2013 UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules, providing a useful overview of the Rules.
