On October 23, 2018 Singapore’s Ministry of Law launched the Singapore Infrastructure Dispute-Management Protocol ("Protocol"), as a way to help parties to mega infrastructure projects navigate disputes and minimize the risks of time and cost overruns.

The Protocol was developed by a Working Group convened by the Ministry, comprising eminent infrastructure and dispute resolution specialists from the private sector, the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC) and the Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC) and launched by the nation state’s Finance Minister at the 8th Asia-Singapore Infrastructure Roundtable, an annual conference that brings together government leaders, policymakers, investors and infrastructure companies.

The Protocol is recommended for infrastructure projects of more than S$500m (approx. $US360m) in value and is offered for adoption by parties by incorporation into their contracts.
