A Guide to the SIAC Arbitration Rules (2nd Edition)

John Choong, Mark Mangan, Nicholas Lingard


This is the first book to provide a comprehensive rule-by-rule commentary of the inception, interpretation, and application of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) Rules. The book provides useful guidance for practitioners whilst also delivering commentary and thematic analysis to highlight the connections between the SIAC Rules and those of other institutions. It begins with an introduction to Singapore arbitration, both practical and legal, and is followed by an overview of SIAC arbitration, including the different stages of a typical case and the corporate structure of SIAC. Every rule is examined in detail on a thematic basis, starting with the commencement of an arbitration and working up to and including the rendering of an award and the determination of costs. This new edition has been fully updated to include the 2016 SIAC Rules, and also contains additional chapters on the new rules on multiple contracts, consolidation, and joinder, the early dismissal of claims and defences, and the SIAC Investment Arbitration Rules (2017). Relevant supporting documents are appended, including SIAC Practice Notes and the SIAC Code of Ethics for Arbitrators. The book is a comprehensive exposition of SIAC arbitration, and is indispensable for any practitioner involved in arbitration in Asia.
