In August 2017, the HKIAC Rules Revision Committee (the “Committee”) announced proposed amendments to the 2013 HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) and launched a public consultation process inviting feedback from users and interest groups. HKIAC received numerous submissions from practitioners, arbitrators, in-house counsel, funders, government authorities and professional groups. The Committee has carefully considered all submissions and will release a new draft of the revised Rules for further consultation. To that end, HKIAC will host a public working group session to discuss the application of some of the new provisions proposed by the Committee against a case scenario. The session provides an opportunity for the legal and business communities in Hong Kong to have a direct discussion with the Committee on any of the proposed amendments.
