Welcome to Bangladesh International Arbitration Centre

Bangladesh International Arbitration Centre (BIAC) is the first international arbitration institution of the country.

The International Chamber of Commerce-Bangladesh (ICC-B), Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) and Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MCCI), Dhaka are sponsors of BIAC. The International Finance Corporation (IFC) – the private sector arm of The World Bank – with funds from UK Aid and European Union, had supported BIAC in the initial stages under a co-operation agreement.

These Rules incorporate some of the leading developments in domestic and international arbitration, while conforming to the Bangladesh Arbitration Act 2001. BIAC is renowned for its first-rate, state-of-the-art arbitration facilities, experienced panel of independent arbitrators, list of mediators and excellence in serving its clients.
