Amendments to the ICC Rules of Arbitration have been made with the aim of further increasing the efficiency and transparency of ICC arbitrations. The revised rules apply from 1 March 2017. They provide for expedited procedure rules for cases of lower value. The main changes will be introduced with a strong focus on features of the expedited procedure including substantive and procedural aspects.
