Project Description

ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR

ICC’s rule-making body and unique think tank in the field of international dispute resolution

The commission is a unique think tank and rule-making body for ICC Dispute Resolution Services. In its research capacity, the commission proposes new policies and tools by producing reports, guidelines or best practices to innovate and promote efficient and cost-effective dispute resolution in view of current developments. Together with the ICC Court and the ICC Centre for ADR it also drafts and revises the ICC’s range of rules for dispute resolution, including the ICC Rules of Arbitration and the ICC Mediation Rules.

ABOUT THE COMMISSION

OBJECTIVES

  • Draft and amend ICC’s Arbitration, Mediation, Expert Determination, Dispute Board and other forms of dispute resolution rules;
  • Study the juridical and other aspects of arbitration and other modes of international dispute settlement, and examine them in view of current developments;
  • Provide reports, guidelines and best practices on a range of topics of current relevance to the world of international dispute resolution, with a view to improving ICC dispute resolution services;
  • Create a link among arbitrators, counsel and users to enable ICC dispute resolution to respond effectively to users’ needs;
  • Act as a forum for ideas on issues relating to international arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution; and
  • Promote ICC’s various dispute resolution services globally.

HOW DOES THE COMMISSION WORK?

The Commission operates through Task Forces and other working groups which carry out specific assignments as formulated in a mandate given by the Commission’s Chairman. The Task Force members are appointed by the ICC’s national committees, and Task Forces are usually chaired by two members who guide the form and substance of the work. A Task Force may have a specific, dedicated mission – such as the publication of a set of rules or guidelines – or may be put into place to study a certain aspect of arbitration or ADR, without a precast idea of the end result of its work.

The Commission holds two plenary sessions per year, which members are encouraged to attend. At these Commission meetings, the members discuss current projects, vote on Task Force reports and have the opportunity to share ideas and views with their peers from around the world.
