The SCC Rules are modern and flexible and give the parties and the arbitrators means to form an effective procedure adapted for the individual case. The rules provide for a procedure in line with the best practices in international arbitration.

The SCC Rules; the Arbitration Rules and the Rules for Expedited Arbitrations, entered into force on 1 January 2010.

English is the original drafting language of the rules. The SCC Rules have been translated into several other languages.

The 2010 SCC Rules are applicable to any arbitration commenced on or after 1 January 2010.

In addition to the SCC Rules, the SCC has developed Mediation Rules and Procedures and Services under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.

Please note that the new 2017 SCC Arbitration Rules will enter into force on 1 January 2017. See the approved versions below. Read more here:
