Note to National Committees and Groups of the ICC on the Proposal of Arbitrators (English version)
Given the importance of having an efficient mechanism for appointing arbitrators in ICC Arbitration, the following Note explains the role of National Committees and Groups of ICC (“Committees and Groups”) in the appointment process pursuant to the ICC Rules of Arbitration (“ICC Rules”).
The Note also explains the interaction desired between the ICC International Court of Arbitration® (“Court”) and the Secretariat of the Court (“Secretariat”) with Committees and Groups, in order to enhance the appointment process.
The term “ICC Rules” in this Note refers to both the 1998 and the 2012 ICC Rules of Arbitration. The term “president” refers indistinctly to chairman of the arbitral tribunal under the 1998 ICC Rules and to president of the arbitral tribunal under the 2012 ICC Rules.
For ease of reference, a practical Checklist on Proposal of Arbitrators is annexed for Committees and Groups to use when they are invited to propose a prospective arbitrator to act as arbitrator.
