With the introduction of the DIFC Arbitration Law 2008, the DIFC has developed a legislative platform for comprehensive dispute resolution. The Arbitration Law is based on the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration, and covers all stages of the arbitral process, from the arbitration agreement to the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards. The adoption of the Model Law makes the DIFC Arbitration Law practical and comprehensible to all arbitration practitioners. The Law also covers all aspects of legislation necessary to accommodate the unique set-up of the DIFC's jurisdiction and legal framework and to overcome any hurdles presented by the region's unique market conditions and dynamics.
The Arbitration Centre's adherence to international practices - and the familiarity, efficiency and flexibility this offers - makes it attractive to the international business community.
