The Arbitral Awards of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration are compiled, translated and commented on by Dr Mohie Eldin I. Alam Eldin, former member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris and currently lawyer at the Egyptian Court of Cassation, and have a preface by Dr M.I.M. Aboul-Enein, Director of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration. The Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA) was established in 1979 as an independent international arbitral organization with jurisdiction over the Arab countries of West Asia and Africa. The CRCICA Rules, modelled initially on the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules, were revised in 1998 to take account of changing provisions and practices in international arbitration. The Arbitral Awards of the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration addresses many significant issues and questions, including the following: do rules of limitation have a role in arbitration?; how greatly do administrative contracts differ from civil contracts in the closing years of this century?; obtaining permissions of works - is this the task of the employer or the contractor?
; what can the arbitrator do if several exchange rates apply to the consideration of a contract? This volume contains a collection of arbitral awards made up to 1996, with those made originally in Arabic translated into English. The editors have summarized each award and included commentary where appropriate, and the awards are followed by legislative or statutory articles as relevant. The text contains arbitral awards covering a broad range of topics including, among others, aviation, supply of services and material, construction, commercial agency, maritime transport, and interpretation of contracts.
