Abstract

STEPHEN L. DRYMER Introduction Over a period of almost four years the members of UNCITRAL Working Group II, in addition to numerous observer States and organisations, toiled to complete the task set for them by UNCITRAL in July 2006: the first-ever and in this author's view long-overdue revision of the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules first adopted in 1976.1 The importance of the task was enormous, given the widespread and increasing use of the UNCITRAL Rules by private parties in commercial disputes, by States in investment arbitrations, and as a template for institutional arbitration rules. The effort was not in vain. On 25 June 2010 the Commission adopted revised Rules, which came into effect on 15 August 2010 and apply to arbitration agreements concluded on or after that date that refer to the UNCITRAL Rules, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. The revised Rules incorporate Partner and co-Chair of International Arbitration at Ogilvy Renault LLP [on 1 June 2011 Ogilvy Renault joins the Norton Rose Group]. The author was a member of Canada's delegation to UNCITRAL Working Group II tasked with the revision of the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.
