A Guide to the CIETAC Arbitration Rules

Jianlong Yu, Lijun Cao


The China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (‘CIETAC’) is the largest permanent arbitration centre in the world, with a fast-growing case load and rising international profile. This commentary on the CIETAC 2012 Arbitration Rules provides guidance on the rules, alongside practical and procedural recommendations from practitioners of unparalleled experience. The commentary is a rule-by-rule examination of the inception, interpretation and application of the new rules, which makes comparative reference to the rules of other institutions and considers all relevant case law and legislation. It groups the rules thematically according to the principle areas of practitioner interest, including chapters on: Jurisdiction and the Arbitration Agreement; Commencing the Arbitration; Formation and Challenges to the Arbitral Tribunal; Conduct of Proceedings; Awards; Summary Procedure; and Costs. The book chapters deal with the practical aspects of arbitrating in China, ensuring the book is a comprehensive reference work for practitioners in the field.
