The laws governing arbitration in Taiwan are the Republic of China Arbitration Act of 1998 modeled after the UNCITRAL Model Law of 1985 and the Rules on Arbitration Institutions, Mediation Procedures, and Fees of 1999. The Chinese Arbitration Association, Taipei Arbitration Rules (“CAA Arbitration Rules”) is the default rule that governs arbitration administered by the CAA. Parties may, of course, amend the rules or agree to arbitrate under its own rules or any other rules they may choose.
Furthermore, the CAA Board of Directors and Supervisors approved the CAAI Arbitration Rules 2017 (Arbitration Rules of the Chinese Arbitration Association, International), which entered into force on 1 July 2017. Adopting a dual-track approach to expand CAA's services and enhance CAA's competitiveness in international arbitration, CAA drafted the CAAI Arbitration Rules 2017 for arbitrations seated outside Taiwan Area, while the CAA Arbitration Rules 2001 will continue to apply to arbitrations seated in Taiwan Area.
