HKIAC was established in 1985 by a group of leading businesspeople and professionals in an effort to meet the growing need for arbitral services in Asia. Initially, the Hong Kong business community and the Hong Kong Government generously funded the HKIAC. Today, the Centre is financially self-sufficient, and completely free and independent from any type of influence or control.
HKIAC is a non-profit company limited by guarantee. The Centre is governed by a council composed of leading businesspeople and professionals from all around the world who possess a wide variety of skills and experience. The HKIAC administers arbitrations and other dispute resolution activities, including mediation and adjudication. The HKIAC manages these activities through the Centre's Secretary General, the chief executive and registrar.
The HKIAC Secretariat is located in the Central Business District in Hong Kong, and is responsible for the day-to-day administration of all disputes referred to the HKIAC. The HKIAC Secretariat handles the administration of arbitration, mediations, adjudications, and domain name disputes. It also provides additional support services including room reservations and fund holding.
