Building ADR capacity in Oman

15 Feb 2022

With arbitration the preferred method of dispute resolution for parties doing business in and through Oman, and with a growth in demand for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) training, the timing is ideal for this partnership.

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and the Oman Commercial Arbitration Centre (OAC) have partnered to offer, for the first time, CIArb’s gold standard arbitrator training and accreditation courses in Oman.

Individuals who achieve CIArb Fellowship through these courses will be deemed to have satisfied the important first step – the education and training requirement – for admission onto OAC’s Panel of Arbitrators.

Further, CIArb and OAC will work together to increase awareness of the advantages of arbitration and other forms of ADR to members of the business and legal communities in Oman and the wider MENA region.

Dr Moosa Al Azri, CEO of the OAC said, “This historic partnership is part of the greater vision of the OAC to build capacity in arbitration in the Sultanate of Oman and generally enhance the attractiveness of Oman as a seat and venue for arbitrations.”

Catherine Dixon, CIArb’s Director General said “CIArb is delighted to be working with the OAC to deliver International Arbitration training in Oman to establish Oman as an attractive and sustainable seat for international arbitration. This exciting collaboration will enable arbitration practitioners and those aspiring to be arbitrators, to access world-class internationally recognised training and to join CIArb’s global and diverse membership of over 17,000 ADR practitioners operating in over 150 jurisdictions.”
