Cases Under UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules

The UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules were adopted in 1976 by the UN Commission on International Trade Law, a worldwide organization that includes representatives from the various legal, economic, and social systems and geographic regions. Cases under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules will proceed more efficiently when parties have named in their contract an experienced, impartial institution to act as the authority to designate arbitrators if the parties do not. When properly requested or designated by agreement, CPR will act as the appointing authority under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.
