A major concern in the arbitration community over the last few months has been the interpretation of Art 5 aa of Regulation (EU) No 833/2014 (as amended on March 15 2022, cf Council Regulation (EU) 2022/428) concerning restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine), and the related question of its impact on arbitration proceedings with sanctioned parties. VIAC shared these concerns. Together with our colleagues at the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), the Arbitration Institute of Finland Chamber of Commerce (FAI), the Milano Chamber of Arbitration (CAM), the German Arbitration Institute (DIS) and the Swiss Arbitration Centre, we highlighted these issues to the legislator. 

We are pleased to share the VIAC Explanatory Notes on the Vienna Rules of Investment Arbitration and Mediation 2021 with you. The guide is available in English here
