The following Arbitration practice note Produced in partnership with Alec Emmerson of ADR Management Consultancies provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Abu Dhabi Commercial Conciliation & Arbitration Centre (ADCCAC) is the arbitration 'arm ' of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce & Industry which operates as a voice of the Abu Dhabi business community. It is an autonomous institution.
The ADCCAC was established in 1993 to deal with matters relating to local and international commercial conciliation and arbitration. Its arbitration regulations (the 2013 Regulations) were revised and updated in 2013 (effective 20 October 2013 regardless of when the arbitration was commenced) bringing them more into line with international arbitration practice than the previous rules which contained a number of features peculiar to the ADCCAC. Under the Transitional Provisions (arts 40–42) of the 2013 Regulations, the 1993 Arbitration Procedural Rules were repealed. Arbitrations begun under the 1993 Regulations continue subject to the 2013 Regulations. This may present some technical issues but these will disappear as the old cases come to a conclusion. The 1993 Regulations had not been amended since their introduction. The procedures were unique in a number of respects and no longer reflected international practice. The 2013 Regulations, although still containing some unique features, provide recognisable procedures and fewer pitfalls but, as with any institution's rules, they must be read carefully and parties and their representatives should ensure they are complied with.
