    Wishing to drive confidence in investment by providing investors a modern framework for an out-court resolution of their disputes, the Emirate of Qatar has enacted a modern arbitration law based on international standards. Inspired by the UNCITRAL Model Law (the Model Law), Qatar Law No 2/2017 on the Issuance of the Arbitration Law in Civil and Commercial Matters supersedes Article 190 to 210 of Qatar Law No 13/1990 on the Issuance of the Civil and Commercial Procedure Law and any law which conflicts with the provisions of Qatar Law No 2/2017. Although the Qatar Law No 2/2017 constitutes a great achievement for arbitration in Qatar after years of inconsistencies and ambiguities, some provisions must be clarified so Qatar can be placed on the list of modern countries for arbitration.

    Established in March 1995 by GCC leaders, one of the main objectives of the GCC Commercial Arbitration Centre (GCCCA) is to fill a gap in the region by providing expeditious and effective arbitration services.The GCCCA was established to administer commercial cases, including cases in the region related to banks, financial institutions, insurance, reinsurance, constructions, engineering, various contracting, intellectual property covering commercial and industrial, copyrights, and all types of international commercial contracts. The conduction of arbitration proceedings under the auspices of the GCCCA is subject to two set rules; the Charter of the Centre (Charter Rules) and the Arbitral Rules of Procedure (Procedural Rules) which should be read and interpreted as complementary to one another.  These two rules together will be referred to as the Rules.In March 1995, it was officially announced that the GCCCA had become fully functioned and ready to fulfil its duties. By virtue of Qatar Decree No 19/2015, the GCCCA was approved by the State of Qatar and has been given the power of law in accordance with Article 68 of Qatar Law No 1/2004.This commentary aims to give a general overview of the major provisions underpinning the conduct of arbitration proceedings in accordance with the GCCCA Rules.
