Arbitration — Conduct of proceedings

This chapter addresses the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) Rules governing the conduct of proceedings in a SIAC arbitration. It begins by enumerating the general principles (Rule 19) in Part A, followed by specific rules governing: the parties' written submissions (Rule 20) in Part B; the choice of seat (Rule 21) and language (Rule 22) in parts C and D, respectively; the parties' representatives (Rule 23) in Part E; the conduct of hearings (Rule 34) in Part F; witness evidence (Rule 25) in Part G; and the use of tribunal-appointed experts (Rule 26) in Part H. Notably, while the SIAC Rules leave considerable scope for the parties to determine how their arbitration should be conducted, the SIAC Rules (and in particular Rules 19.1, 20.1, and 25.3) have been amended in recent years to make clear that the tribunal has full authority to conduct the arbitration as it considers appropriate.
