The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) will this year launch a new biannual periodical, the ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin, which will succeed the prestigious ICC International Court of Arbitration Bulletin.

ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin

The new Bulletin will be more focused on ICC procedures than its predecessor, with over 100 pages of extracts from ICC arbitral awards in each issue, as well as procedural orders raising interesting issues for the practice of ICC arbitration. In addition, the new publication will regularly carry articles on the practices of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and its Secretariat in the administration of cases. As reflected in its new name, the Bulletin will also cover ICC’s other dispute resolution services, which include mediation, experts, dispute boards and the new ICC Rules for Documentary Instruments Dispute Resolution Expertise (DOCDEX) to be released soon.

Andrea Carlevaris, Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and Director of ICC Dispute Resolution Services, described the new departure as a response to demand for a greater offering of ICC material. “After 25 successful years, the Bulletin will focus on what makes it unique – awards, procedural decisions and in-house commentaries. This material is simply unavailable elsewhere and we hope that this new focus will contribute to a greater understanding of ICC procedures and practices.”

With a worldwide readership, the Bulletin has already earned much recognition among professionals. Laurent Levy, Arbitrator, Co-head of the Geneva-based boutique law firm Levy Kaufmann-Kohler and Vice-President of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, is a regular reader: “Ever since the first issue came out in 1990, the Bulletin has time and again proved to me its value as an indispensable resource when conducting cases and for training,” he said. “It remains at the forefront in our field, unmatched in its offer of otherwise inaccessible materials and data imparting know-how, analysis and experience.”

Eduardo Silva Romero, Arbitrator and Chair of Dechert’s international arbitration global practice, underlined the value of the Bulletin’s content: “Through the rich array of decisions, reports, notes and articles published in the Bulletin , readers have access to the practices arising out of the implementation of the ICC Rules of Arbitration, arbitral awards showing the trends followed by ICC arbitral tribunals on both procedural and substantive issues raised in ICC cases, and scientific studies that have contributed to the development of ICC dispute resolution and international arbitration in general.”

The new Bulletin will be published twice a year in June and December.
