The Singapore International Arbitration Act (1): A Commentary

Nelson Goh, Jonathan Lim, Paul Tan


Over the past couple of decades, Singapore has successfully established itself as one of the major centres for international dispute resolution. The Singapore International Arbitration Act (SIAA), originally enacted in 1994 to give effect to the Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration, has been revised and amended four times over its lifetime, further strengthening Singapore's position as a hub for international arbitration. Following the latest amendments in 2020, this book presents an in-depth, section-by-section commentary of the SIAA, written with a strong coverage of the significant corpus of Singapore arbitration jurisprudence that has been developed by the Singapore Courts over the last decade or so. It provides up-to-date analysis of each section of the Act and relevant provisions of the UNCITRAL Model Law. While Singapore case law and the approach taken by the Singapore Courts is the main focus, the book also adopts a comparative and international lens on critical issues where the law remains in a state of progressive development. The book will be an indispensable resource for practitioners, students, and academics on the law and practice of arbitration in Singapore and other Model Law jurisdictions.
