ICC Report on Emergency Arbitrator Proceedings – Global Kick Off Launch

Paris, France, • English

This kick off launch will present the newly released Report of the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR providing guidance to users, counsel and arbitrators of emergency arbitrator proceedings.

Description

This latest ICC Report studies the experience with emergency arbitration (“EA”) proceedings and analyses all aspects, including procedural and substantive issues that may arise in EA proceedings in order to identify and examine any emerging trends and to facilitate the use of EA proceedings through increased transparency and predictability.

The Report is based on an empirical study of the first eighty ICC EA applications and benefited from experiences provided by other arbitral institutions with similar EA mechanisms.  The Report includes a summary table provided by ICC National Committees addressing questions regarding the status of EA proceedings under local laws, such as the enforceability of EA decisions and the availability of specific statutory rules.

The Launch will be followed by a light lunch.

Who should attend?

Arbitration practitioners, counsel, users and Arbitrators.
