Modern Arbitration Rules
Tried and tested rules
The MIAC Arbitration Rules are based on the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules 2010, which are widely tried and tested, and permit the predictability and procedural flexibility that are desired by parties.
Trusted appointing authority
The Secretary-General of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) is entrusted with the role of appointing authority under the MIAC Arbitration Rules.
Trusted default seat
Where parties have not previously agreed on the place of arbitration, cases under the MIAC Arbitration Rules are seated in Mauritius.
- MIAC’s state-of-the-art hearing facility is located in the heart of Port Louis, at Coaster Shed A, Port Louis Waterfront.
- The Arbitration Suite is equipped with a state-of-the-art multi-functional Audio Visual System (“AV System”), one of its kind in Mauritius. With several setup options which have been tailored-made to meet our requirements, MIAC can seamlessly organize virtual, in-person and hybrid hearings as well as different types of live-streamed and recorded events.
- MIAC does not charge any registration fee for the administration of a case, but only for work actually performed in accordance with its competitive Statement of Fees.
