ADGMAC has entered into a number of cooperation agreements with other arbitration centres and organisations around the world. The agreements provide a framework for cooperation and are intended to benefit end-users of both arbitration and mediation. They are designed to foster a sense of community and mutual support with the ultimate goal of enhancing the accessibility, efficiency, and effectiveness of arbitration and mediation, both regionally and internationally.

ADGMAC is a state-of-the-art hearing facility and not an institution. Therefore we encourage the use of our facilities by parties regardless of which institution they choose to administer their arbitration. In addition, parties can make use of ADGMAC’s facilities and services even where the legal place of the arbitration is outside of ADGM. The facilities are also available for all types of mediation cases.

To date, ADGM has signed cooperation agreements with the following entities:

Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC)
Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (KCAB International)
Russian Institute of Modern Arbitration (RIMA)
Saudi Center for Commercial Arbitration (SCCA)
The Cairo Regional Center for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA)
The Lebanese Arbitration and Mediation Center (LAMC)
