This is the first text to provide a comprehensive rule-by-rule examination of the inception, interpretation and application of the 2010 SIAC Rules, written by practitioners with extensive experience in South East Asia arbitrations, and with the benefit of assistance from the SIAC Secretariat.It is practical and strategic in approach, considering how each rule features in the context of the realities that practitioners face, while a complementary thematic analysis brings out connections between the rules and those of other institutions.The work benefits from the privileged access to the travaux preparatoires of the 2010 Arbitration Rules Drafting Committee, giving them insight into the purposive thinking behind the amendments, as well as access to SIAC awards and the viws of the SIAC Secretariat. It is accompanied by a preface bythe SIAC Chairman, Michael Pryles. The book begins with an analysis of Singapore arbitration law, the history of the SIAC, and a consideration of the rising prominence of Indian parties in SIAC arbitrations and its consequences. Every rule is then examined in detail. The book concludes with chapters dedicated to SIAC domesticarbitrations and cases administered by SIAC which are governed by the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules. Relevant supporting documents are appended, including SIAC Practice Notes and the SIAC Code of Ethics for Arbitrators. No aspect of SIAC arbitration is left uncovered, and the guide stands alone as acomprehensive exposition of SIAC arbitration.
