The Saudi Centre for Commercial Arbitration (SCCA) and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) are pleased to announce their prestigious partnership under which the Chartered Institute’s Pathway in International Arbitration will be delivered under the SCCA’s auspices in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Both organisations have a commitment to the development and promotion of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
The Saudi Centre for Commercial Arbitration (SCCA) was established by Cabinet Decree number 257 dated 14/6/1435 H. – 15/03/2014 G. to administer arbitration procedures in civil and commercial disputes where parties agree to refer their disputes to SCCA arbitration. Based in Riyadh, it is a centre of excellence for the promotion and advancement of arbitration in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Through the Pathway, its Arbitrator Roster will be mapped to CIArb’s membership, which will enable successful candidates in Riyadh to obtain a vital qualification in arbitration.
The Director for Education and Training at CIArb, Dr Paresh Kathrani, who signed the contract at a conference in Riyadh last year, said: “The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators is delighted to have signed this contract with the Saudi Centre for Commercial Arbitration. CIArb’s training includes mediation, arbitration, negotiation and adjudication. Together with the SCCA, we are looking forward to training Saudi arbitrators and promoting alternative dispute resolution in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.’
The CIArb Pathway in International Arbitration consists of three discrete modules in the following subjects:
Module 1: Law, Practice and Procedure of International Commercial Arbitration
Module 2: Law of Obligations
Module 3: Evidence, Decision Making and Award Writing of International Arbitration
Successful completion of the Module 1 course and assessment makes candidates eligible to apply for Membership of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb), and upon successfully completing the Modules 2 and 3 courses and assessments, as well as a peer interview, candidates can apply for Fellowship of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb)
Module 1 will run at the SCCA in Riyadh from September 2019
