ICC (2017)—appointing the tribunal

For information on how this content and relevant arbitration proceedings may be impacted, see Practice Note: Arbitral organisations and coronavirus (COVID-19)—practical impact. For additional information, see: Coronavirus (COVID-19) and arbitration—overview.

Appointing the tribunal is an important step in any arbitration. Having the right tribunal is key to ensuring the arbitration runs efficiently and that a just result is reached.

The method of appointment of the arbitral tribunal will depend on several factors, most importantly any provision made by the parties in their arbitration agreement or in some other written document, see Practice Note: Choosing your arbitral tribunal.

This Practice Note considers matters relating to the appointment of a tribunal or sole arbitrator under the 2017 Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) (2017 ICC Rules). The 2017 ICC Rules apply to any ICC arbitration commenced between 1 March 2017 and 31 December 2020 (unless the parties expressly agree that an earlier version of the ICC Rules will apply, which is unlikely). It also refers to the guidance in the ICC Note to Parties and Arbitral Tribunals on the Conduct of the Arbitration under the ICC Rules of Arbitration (ICC Note).
