On 5 February 1999, the Cairo branch of CIArb was established as the first ever CIArb Branch in the region and the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA) was announced as its seat. In July 2018, the updated Branch Model Rules named the Branch “the Egypt Branch”.
As of 1999, the Cairo Branch, in collaboration with CRCICA, held regular membership courses and around one third of members at that time were Arab members from outside Egypt.
From 2011 to 2019, the Branch collaborated with CRCICA in holding regionally customized versions of Module I: Law of obligations and Civil Evidence and Module 2: Law of Arbitration qualifying for the membership of the Institute for both lawyers and non-lawyers.
