24 September 2021

This will be my last message as President of SIArb. I cannot quite believe 4 years have passed. I will be stepping into the role of Immediate Past President after our AGM on 27 September 2021. I look forward to continuing to serve within Council in that capacity. I will always have fond memories of my time at SIArb right back to when I first volunteered to work in Naresh Mahtani’s 25th anniversary celebrations committee. Since then, I have served as Editor of the Newsletter, as Treasurer and Vice President as well. I have been blessed by the camaraderie of fellow committee and Council members as well as the mentorship of past Presidents such as Johnny Tan, Mohan Pillay and Chan Leng Sun SC. It is my hope that SIArb will continue to grow from strength to strength as a leading provider of quality training and education in international arbitration.

One exciting initiative is the launch of the SCMA-SIArb Maritime Arbitrator’s Fellowship Course on 1 Oct 2021. This course will comprise SIArb’s Fellowship Assessment Course (“FAC”) and SCMA’s Maritime Arbitrator Accreditation Program (“MAAP”) and is suitable for aspiring maritime arbitrators who have met the criteria for admission to the FAC. Existing Fellows of SIArb are also encouraged to consider signing up for the MAAP. The inaugural run of the Course will commence with SIArb’s FAC 2021 intake from 1 Oct – 8 November 2021 with the inaugural MAAP component being conducted on 29 October 2021. We look forward to this being the start of a long and fruitful relationship with SCMA.

We had hoped to celebrate SIArb’s 40th anniversary with an in person dinner this year. However, as the current situation with the pandemic is still in a transitionary phase (hopefully becoming endemic soon), Council has decided to postpone our celebrations to next year. Hopefully we will also be in a position to bring back our Symposium at the Old Parliament House. I look forward to seeing you at the AGM when the composition of the newly elected Council will be ascertained.

Thank you for the privilege of being your President these last 4 years.

Dinesh Dhillon
President,
SIArb 2017-2021

The Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) is pleased to announce the launch of the “SCMA-SIArb MARITIME ARBITRATOR’S FELLOWSHIP COURSE” (“Course”) which will be offered by SIArb in conjunction with the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration ("SCMA").

The inaugural run of the Course will commence with SIArb’s Online FAC 2021 intake from 1 October – 8 November 2021 with the inaugural MAAP component being conducted on 29 October 2021.

SIArb’s FAC focuses on teaching candidates the practical aspects of acting as an arbitrator including:

  • acceptance of an arbitral appointment
  • dealing with jurisdictional challenges
  • emergency arbitrations
  • case management in conducting an arbitration
  • techniques for controlling time and costs in an arbitration

  • the practical aspects of actually writing the Final Award.

SCMA’s MAAP will cover:

  • an overview of maritime arbitration and issues specific to maritime arbitration, in particular, a discussion on various ADR solutions (costs and time frames), litigation (why it is less suited to commercial parties), and arbitration (advantages and disadvantages of arbitration in a maritime context, fundamental features of maritime arbitration and others).

  • the SCMA framework for maritime arbitration and will include the SCMA Model Arbitration Clauses, the Expedited Claims Procedure, the Expedited Arbitral Determination of Collision Claims (SEADOCC), managing arbitration and legal costs, and managing the arbitration procedure.

Candidates who successfully complete the Course will be awarded the “Certificate of Fellowship in Maritime Arbitration” jointly issued by SIArb and SCMA.  For more details on the Course, please visit HERE.
