ICSID is amending its rules and regulations. This marks the fourth time the ICSID rules have been updated, and is the most extensive review to date.
overarching goals are to modernize, simplify, and streamline the rules, while
also leveraging information technology to reduce the environmental footprint of
ICSID proceedings. The
process draws on the lessons learned from hundreds of ICSID cases. Read more.
On August 3, 2018, the ICSID Secretariat published comprehensive proposals for rule amendments. A synopsis of the proposed changes is available in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and Arabic. Links to the proposed draft rules (in English, French and Spanish), and a working paper with commentary on the proposals, are available below.
