This chapter examines those provisions that generally frame an arbitration under the HKIAC Rules. It first discusses Articles 1.1, 1.3, and 1.4 (scope of application of the HKIAC Rules and arbitrations which may be administered under the HKIAC Rules) as well as Article 1.2 (how the HKIAC Rules interact with the other rules promulgated by the HKIAC). The chapter then turns to Articles 2.1 and 2.2 (how notices and other written communication should be delivered and when they will be deemed to have been received). Next, the chapter examines Articles 2.3 and 2.4 (calculation of time limits under the HKIAC Rules). Article 3 (definitions of key terms used throughout the HKIAC Rules) is last to be discussed.
