Parties bound by an arbitration clause or agreement which provides for disputes to be arbitrated under the UNCITRAL Rules are required by Article 3 to provide a formal notice of arbitration to initiate the proceedings. This chapter addresses the following topics: Article 3(1) explicitly states this notice requirement, while Article 3(2) establishes the date of receipt of notice as the official date for commencement of the proceedings; Article 3(3) details the information which must be included in the notice of arbitration; Article 3(4) gives claimants the option of accelerating the proceedings by providing additional information.
