The Tanzania Institute of Arbitrators

The Tanzania Institute of Arbitrators (TIArb) was registered in December 1999 by the Registrar of Societies with a Certificate of Registration No. 8833.The main function of TIArb is to promote and facilitate the resolution of commercial disputes in Tanzania. Before its establishment, The National Construction Council (NCC) had been undertaking such a responsibility for the construction related disputes only.

In 1995, the National Construction Council (NCC) consulted the A.G. Chambers and the Tanganyika Law Society regarding the establishment of a commercial arbitration institution. Originally, NCC had been resolving construction–related disputes only. However, it saw the importance of spear heading the establishment of an institutional frame work for resolving not only construction related disputes but also commercial disputes as a whole. Hence, on 6th July 1995, NCC organized a brainstorming meeting involving 20 invitees, which subsequently formed the Steering Committee, to develop a frame work for the settlement of all types of commercial disputes.

The Steering Committee prepared a draft constitution, which was reviewed by the first General Meeting held on 25th October, 1995, as the guiding framework of a new arbitration organization. On 15thJuly, 1997, TIArb was registered by the Registrar of Societies with a Certificate Registration SO. No.8833. Two years later, on 10th December, 1999, the Tanzania Institute of Arbitrators (TIArb) was formally launched by Honourable Francis Nyalali (the former Chief Justice of Tanzania).
