The 2023 SIAC Draft Rules: Raising the Bar for Efficiency

On 22 August 2023, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) published the Draft 7th Edition of the SIAC Rules (the “Draft Rules”) for public consultation. The Draft Rules introduce several noteworthy changes as part of a concerted effort to “raise the bar on efficiency, expedition, and cost-effectiveness” (see SIAC Registrar’s Report). The public consultation period remains in effect until 21 November 2023 and comments can be submitted via email to and or via the SIAC website under “Feedback.”
