The examination is closed book however candidates will be allowed to use unmarked copies of the Reference Materials and National Laws folders. Highlighting and underlining is permitted.

Results are dispatched to candidates normally eight to twelve weeks from the date of the submission of the assignment or examination.

Candidates will be automatically registered to sit the examination at CIArb offices, Bloomsbury Square, London.
