The United Nations Convention on Transparency in Treaty-based Investor-State Arbitration enters into force today
The United Nations Convention in Transparency in Treaty-based Investor-State Arbitration (“The Mauritius Convention on Transparency”) will enter into force today, 18 October 2017. The Convention has to date been ratified by Canada, Mauritius and Switzerland. None of the ratifying States made reservations and, as a result, the Transparency Rules are now part of the investor-State dispute settlement regime created by investment treaties concluded by those three States. Consequently, the Transparency Rules will apply to investor-State disputes arising under investment treaties concluded by those States before April 2014 in accordance with the conditions set forth in the Transparency Convention and the relevant investment treaties.
