The following Arbitration practice note produced in partnership with Peter McQueen provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Many maritime arbitrations are conducted in accordance with the procedural rules of maritime arbitration organisations which recommend and promote template arbitration clauses. Most of those organisations do not administer the arbitration proceedings.
The leading organisations historically have been centred in London and New York. However, with the movement of trade flows from the European and North American regions to the Asia-Pacific region, arbitration organisations have developed, particularly in China (Beijing and Shanghai) and Singapore.
Those leading organisations are the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA), the Society of Maritime Arbitrators (SMA), the China Maritime Arbitration Commission (CMAC) and the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA).
The current procedural rules of each are summarised in the table below. Full details of those organisations, including their panels of arbitrators and their rules can be found on their websites, which are also set out below.
The International Congress of Maritime Arbitrators (ICMA) is a forum of maritime arbitrators and lawyers and maritime and marine insurance industry personnel holding conferences every two to four years to promote maritime arbitration worldwide.

London Maritime Arbitrators Association
Society of Maritime Arbitrators Inc
China Maritime Arbitration Commission
Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration
