The VIAC Rules of Arbitration (“VIAC Arbitration Rules”), which may be downloaded below, are applied in arbitral proceedings when Parties have agreed to VIAC arbitration to resolve their dispute. It has become a practice of Southeastern European States, especially ones on the territory of the former Yugoslavia, to choose the VIAC as their designated arbitration forum.
The VIAC Arbitration Rules have undergone multiple revisions over time, in order to adapt to the changing needs of business.
The VIAC revised its arbitration rules in 1983. This version may be downloaded here: 1983 VIAC Rules of Arbitration and Conciliation.
Then, at the beginning of the 1990’s, the VIAC issued another revision of its rules. They may be found here: 1991 VIAC Rules of Arbitration and Conciliation.
In 2001, the VIAC revised its rules of arbitration again. These rules can be downloaded here: 2001 VIAC Arbitration Rules.
In 2006, the VIAC also published new Rules of Arbitration and Conciliation, which can be found here: 2006 VIAC Arbitration Rules. These rules were made available in several different languages such as Chinese, English and German.
In 2013, another revision of the VIAC Rules of Arbitration was issued. These rules can be downloaded here: 2013 VIAC Arbitration Rules. These rules are available in 14 different languages.
Finally, on 1 January 2018, the VIAC issued the latest version of its arbitration rules, which are currently in force. The 2018 VIAC Arbitration Rules may be downloaded here: 2018 VIAC Arbitration Rules.
