Update on the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules Revision

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The UNCITRAL Rules Revision process began in September 2006 - the first revision in 30 years.
The revision process has been a complicated and difficult one. It is a process that cannot be rushed
as one might reasonably expect the new edition of the UNCITRAL Rules needs to serve another
30 years. This article provides an insight into the conduct of the 50th session of Working Group
11, the Working Group within UNCITRAL that has been charged with preparing draft rules for
the Commission to consider and approve. It was a very interesting session in which a number of
significant and controversial issues were considered. Our report focuses on three specific issues -
the treatment of set-off;, witnesses; and interim measures.
