Why MIAC?

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.

State-of-the-art Facility

  • MIAC’s state-of-the-art hearing facility is located in the heart of Port Louis, at Coaster Shed A, Port Louis Waterfront.
