Senior Associate Justin Ede’s presentation focused on the new rules for ADCCAC and covered all the important changes that came into force on 1 September 2013.
The presentation‘s main focus was on how those changes in the rules reflect on the practice. Justin began by a clarifying key terms and definitions. It was then noted that changes have been made in relation to the initiation process particularly to allow the arbitration process to run at a time-tight schedule; therefore grounding the possibility of a quicker procedure.
The seminar highlighted that the new rules are a major advancement for arbitration before ADCCAC, providing a modern set of principles that broadly embrace the approach of established sets of rules such as the ICC and DIAC.
