This chapter begins with a brief history of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and its rules of arbitration. It covers the establishment of the SIAC and the evolution of its corporate and management structure. The chapter then identifies the key differences between the six iterations of the (standard) SIAC Rules. These include the 1991, 1997, 2007, 2010, and 2013 SIAC Rules; retrospective amendments to the 2007 and 2010 SIAC Rules; SIAC domestic arbitration rules; and bunker claims procedure, mediation–arbitration procedure, and derivatives arbitration. The chapter concludes with a graphical overview of the typical stages in an SIAC arbitration conducted under the 2016 SIAC Rules. The relevant rule for each procedure and the chapter in which it is discussed are identified in the flowchart.
