The Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, Lagos (RCICAL) Rules for Arbitration, drafted in 1999 were later revised and effective from 1 July, 2008. The Rules for Arbitration were adopted from the UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION ON INTERNATIONAL TRADES LAW (UNCITRAL) Arbitration Rules adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1976. The modifications introduced to add institutional features to the revised Centre Rules of 2008 were carefully crafted to take care of future modernization of the Rules for Arbitration and that sustained the Centre Rules till the current revision. The new revised Centre Rules takes effect from 3rd October, 2019 for arbitrations held on/or after that date. They are adopted from UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules as revised in 2013.
