Get to know the changes to the ICC Arbitration Rules and join us for the regional launch of the 2021 Rules of Arbitration, in Spanish, presented by members of the Secretariat through examples and practical cases.

The ICC 2021 Rules of Arbitration will come into force on 1 January 2021, replacing the 2017 Rules of Arbitration.

The new Rules make noticeable changes to the framework of ICC arbitration, while not altering its character. The new provisions relate to complex arbitrations, conflicts of interests, transparency and integrity of the proceedings, investment treaty arbitration, emergency arbitrator provisions, the expedited procedure, remote hearings and electronic communications, claims relating to the administration of arbitration proceedings by the Court, and additional awards.

This regional launch in Spanish is following the Global Launch held on 1st December 2020.

This event will be held in Spanish. (Bogota / Lima time)*
