SIAC, an independent, not-for-profit organisation, was established in 1991 to meet the demands of the international business community for a neutral, efficient and reliable dispute resolution institution in a fast-developing Asia.
SIAC's operations are overseen by a Board of Directors that comprises luminaries in the international arbitration arena.
As an institution administering arbitration, SIAC is committed to complete impartiality and transparency in all that it does for parties. Broadly, it helps parties in:
- Appointment of arbitrators when they cannot agree on an appointment
- Management of the financial and other practical aspects of arbitration
- Facilitation of the smooth progress of arbitration
SIAC carries out these responsibilities according to its published guidelines in its Code of Practice. SIAC seeks to promote the highest standard of conduct and delivery in all arbitrations conducted under its auspices.
With a multinational and multi-cultural professional secretariat, SIAC is devoted to serving all its users with a complete understanding of their needs.
