Proceedings Committee

Proceedings Committee

The Proceedings Committee is mandated by the HKIAC Council primarily to: (1) decide challenges to the appointment of an arbitrator or an emergency arbitrator; (2) exercise all other powers vested in HKIAC by the arbitration rules issued by HKIAC to the extent that such powers are not exercised by the Appointments Committee or the Secretariat; and (3) consider revisions of HKIAC’s existing arbitration rules and practice notes and propose the adoption of new rules and practice notes. The work of the Proceedings Committee, the Appointments Committee and the Secretariat is subject to the supervision of the HKIAC Council.
