The ICC Rules require that the prospective arbitrator discloses to the Secretariat any facts or circumstances which might be of such nature as to call into question the arbitrator’s independence in the eyes of the parties, as well as any circumstances that could give rise to reasonable doubts as to the arbitrator’s impartiality.
Many important issues relating to arbitrator disclosures are however still unresolved and a number of grey areas remain which have given rise to diverse case law in various jurisdictions.
The panel will discuss these obligations and share their respective experience.
