What does "arbitration under the UNCITRAL rules" mean?
A reference in a dispute settlement clause to the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules or (in a frequent, but inaccurate formulation) to "UNCITRAL arbitration" or any other provision to the same effect means that the parties agree that an existing or a future dispute should be settled in arbitral proceedings conducted in accordance with the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.
Although UNCITRAL and its Secretariat have prepared legislative and contractual provisions and rules relating to international commercial arbitration and conciliation, it is not within UNCITRAL's mandate, as set out by the General Assembly, to become involved in individual cases. UNCITRAL and its Secretariat do not act as an arbitral tribunal, administer arbitration proceedings, or otherwise perform any function related to individual arbitration proceedings, or any other system of public or private dispute settlement.
