Singapore International Mediation Centre

The Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC) was established in March 2014 as an independent, not-for-profit company. The SIMC aims to provide best-in-class mediation services and products targeted at the needs of parties in cross-border commercial disputes, particularly those based in Asia.

Hosting an experienced panel of international mediators drawn from Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe as well as North and South America, SIMC will offer, amongst other things, professional appointing authority and case management services under the SIMC Rules. Mediation at SIMC will come with the unique benefit of enforceability as settlement agreements may be made consent awards under an Arb-Med-Arb Protocol between the Singapore International Arbitration Centre and SIMC.
