Draft model arbitration bill for CARICOM states being reviewed by committee
Published on February 15, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- In response to requests by some CARICOM member states for updated arbitration legislation, the Canadian government-funded project Improved Access to Justice in the Caribbean (IMPACT Justice) has drafted a Model Arbitration Bill for the region. This Bill will be reviewed at a meeting of the IMPACT Justice Arbitration Legislation Committee on February 16 and 17 at the Faculty of Law, UWI Mona Campus, Kingston, Jamaica.

The drafting of model arbitration legislation is part of the project’s mandate to draft gender and environmentally sensitive model CSME and other laws for presentation to the CARICOM Legal Affairs Committee for approval.

This is in keeping with the project’s commitment to provide assistance to CARICOM member states in formulating laws leading to greater integration and sustainable economic growth in the region.

The IMPACT Justice Model Arbitration Bill was drafted with input from the project’s Arbitration Legislation Committee, which reviewed existing arbitration legislation and made recommendations for the new model bill.
