The new Arbitration Ordinance (Cap.609), which passed in November 2010, makes substantial reforms to the existing arbitration regime in Hong Kong. Under the new law, Hong Kong will follow the international standard – the UNCITRAL Model Law - and there will no separate regimes for “domestic” and “international” arbitrations.

The changes will have a very significant impact on arbitration proceedings. This book is a “must have” for all lawyers and other professionals involved in arbitration. It:

  • has detailed discussion and analysis of every section. There is a special emphasis on how the new provisions are likely to be applied in practice
  • highlights how the new legislation differs from the Arbitration Ordinance 1997, and from the UNCITRAL Model Law
  • makes extensive use of a wide range of materials, including the background papers for the new Arbitration Ordinance; the travaux preparatoires to the UNCITRAL Model Law; and case law from Hong Kong and beyond Useful materials are included, such as the Arbitration Ordinance 1997 and the HKIAC Report 1996
  • is written by 14 Hong Kong-based arbitration specialists with substantial experience in both international and domestic arbitrations in a wide range of industries.

This publication is a one stop shop for those who need to refer to the new law on a regular basis.
