The Saudi Centre for Commercial Arbitration (SCCA) has opened in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and aims to be the leading regional centre for alternative dispute resolution by 2030.
The SCCA was legally established by Council of Ministers decree number 2057 dated 14/6/1435H (corresponding to 15 March 2014G). The SCCA is now physically established in a modern facility at the Council of Saudi Chambers building in Riyadh. In addition, the SCCA has now published Arbitration Rules, which will enable it to facilitate and administer arbitration in Saudi Arabia.
