ICC 2021 Rules of Arbitration – Launch in Vietnam

09:00 (Paris)|14:00 (Hanoi)

The 2021 ICC Rules of Arbitration, came into force on January 1, 2021. The 2021 arbitration rules provide a wide range of amendments, including rules for simple and expeditious arbitration, rules for multi-party arbitration, rules for IT in coronavirus crisis, and rules for transparency of arbitration procedures. In this launch, arbitration practitioners from Vietnam will reflect on the impact of these changes in their practice. 

The "new" Rules, -in force since January 2021- make noticeable changes to the framework of ICC arbitration, while not altering its character. In the words of ICC Court President Alexis Mourre, the 2021 ICC Rules of Arbitration “mark a further step towards greater efficiency, flexibility and transparency of the Rules, making ICC Arbitration even more attractive, both for large, complex arbitrations and for smaller cases.”  

This national launch in Vietnam will introduce the main changes to the Rules.  A panel of professional arbitration practitioners will also discuss the impact of these changes in the context of their arbitration practices.

The first half of the webinar will also include a keynote speech by Mr. Alexander G. Fessas, Secretary General of the ICC Court of International Arbitration.
