Proposed Revisions to PRC Arbitration Law
15 September 2021
On 30 July 2021, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) of the PRC released proposed revisions to the PRC Arbitration Law for public consultation (“Revision Draft”). The MOJ also published explanatory notes to the Revision Draft.
China’s Arbitration Law was enacted in 1994 and since its enactment there have been no significant amendments. In 2018, the MOJ commenced a review process of the current law, which led to the publication of the Revision Draft.

The Revision Draft foreshadows a number of new initiatives which include the following.
