Arbitration & Mediation

Rules & Standard Arbitration Clause

MARC Rules of Arbitration are used to resolve business disputes through arbitration. The current Rules are in force as from 1 March 2014.

They define and regulate the conduct of cases submitted to the MCCI Arbitration and Mediation Center. In choosing to follow these rules, parties involved in business transactions are assured of a neutral framework for the resolution of disputes, whether domestic or international.

Commonly known as the MARC Arbitration Rules, the rules of arbitration govern the conduct of MARC arbitration proceedings from start to finish. They regulate the filing of claims, the constitution of arbitral tribunals, the conduct of proceedings, the rendering of decisions and the determination of costs. While offering security and predictability, the MARC Rules also accommodate any preferences parties in dispute might have with respect to certain aspects of the proceedings, such as the choice of arbitrators, the place, and the language of arbitration.

The MCCI Arbitration and Mediation Center (MARC) is the only body authorized to administer arbitrations under the Rules.

See MARC Guide.
