Mayer Brown Legal Update
The Prague Rules, also referred to as “Inquisitorial Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration,” will be officially launched on 14 December 2018 in Prague. These rules are intended to constitute a tool available to parties and arbitral tribunals to increase efficiency in international arbitration and to reduce costs.

The Prague Rules can be applied by arbitral tribunals as a binding document or be used as guidelines. Parties and arbitrators can also agree or decide to select or modify the elements they wish to apply.
