This chapter addresses one of the main changes in the 2016 Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) Rules: the introduction of Rule 29 on the early dismissal of claims and defences. The 2010 SIAC Arbitration Rules did not contain any equivalent provision. The chapter begins with an introduction to early dismissal mechanisms in arbitration generally, in Part A. It then addresses the scope of Rule 29 in Part B, followed by an examination of the procedural aspects of Rule 29 in Part C. Parts D and E examine the discretion of the tribunal in deciding whether to grant a Rule 29 application and the tribunal's decision at the conclusion of the Rule 29 proceedings, respectively.
